2 Dead In Southaven Shooting

Southaven, Ms

What started out as festive Halloween family barbecue ended with two bystanders dead and one other in the Memphis Trauma Center.
Around 9 p.m., Saturday night gunshots were heard in the quite neighborhood of Colonial Hills.

The shooting on Vaught Circle near Southaven Circle began when two male blacks arguing and escalated.

Caught in the crossfire were a man and woman that were not part of the dispute but were participating in the family gathering.
They were pronounced dead at the scene.

One suspect was arrested in Memphis this morning by Southaven Police and US Marshals and is at 201 Poplar.
The suspect is awaiting extradition back to Mississippi to face charges.

Police say that all involved knew each other and this was not a random shooting and are not releasing names until family has been notified.

The investigation is ongoing.
