Attempted Murder Charges Filed Against Four in Greenwood

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — Ongoing investigations into last weeks shootings in Greenwood and Leflore County have resulted in formal charges of attempted murder against four men. Last week police said they expected to charge six of ten people held for questioning since last Wednesday, however they say more arrests and charges are “expected”. 24-year-old Demetrius Davis, 17-year-old Juwon Smith, and 21-year-old Kevontae Williams were each charged with five counts of attempted murder, shooting into an occupied dwelling, aggravated assault and shooting into a motor vehicle. Bond for each was set at $790,000. The fourth suspect, 21-year-old Malik Pitts is charged with five counts of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied dwelling, with a bond of $760,000. The men are accused in the second of three shootings that occurred Tuesday evening into early Wednesday morning where a hail of bullets were fired into an occupied home in the 700 block of Avenue I in South Greenwood. No one was injured in that incident. However 35-year-old Ernest Williams was killed when two men shot him as he sat in his car at the Bishop apartments after dropping off a friend Tuesday night around 9:30 PM. Another car was riddled with bullets in Greenwood around 3:00 AM Wednesday morning, and in that shooting, a woman suffered gunshot wounds to the back and remains in stable condition at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.
