Affidavit: Murder suspect confessed to deadly Robindale Rd. shooting

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - We are learning new details about a shooting that left one man dead and another injured on Robindale Rd. late Saturday night.

According to documents filed in Harrison County Justice Court, Shaquil Oneal Sands admitted to investigators that he shot Dijon McCorckle and Richard Doby.

The documents said an altercation took place between Sands, McCorckle and Doby in front of Sands' home.

According to the affidavit, Sands told investigators McCorckle, who was known to carry a gun, made a threatening statement before heading toward the car where his gun was kept.

Sands said he shot McCorckle and Doby to prevent McCorckle from getting the gun out of his car, according to the affidavit.

Harrison County Sheriff's deputies were called to the scene just after 9 p.m. That's where they found McCorckle lying in the middle of the street suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

Doby was found dead a short distance away, according to investigators.

McCorckle told investigators Sands shot him, according to the affidavit. He was taken to Garden Park Medical Center and was later transferred to Memorial Hospital for treatment. We still have no word on his condition.

Sands made an initial court appearance Monday, and isn't expected back in court for three to four weeks.

Sheriff Troy Peterson announced Tuesday afternoon Sands was set to be released from jail after posting a $1.5 million bond. About an hour after that announcement, Peterson said everything changed.

Sands needed a co-signer for the $1.5 million bond, and that person backed out.

Sands is charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
