Batesville Shooting Investigations Continue

Chicot Memorial

BATESVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Batesville police continue to investigate shootings this month that have left one person dead, another in serious condition at a Memphis hospital and at least two others with gunshot wounds. 23-year old George Douglas Mister III died from an apparent gunshot wound to the head while sitting on the front porch of a home on June 8th. Police are unsure whether it was self-inflicted; eyewitnesses said he accidentally shot himself while playing with a pistol but family members say Mister had been killed by one of the witnesses. On June 11th police were alerted to gunshots. Five handguns were recovered at the scene and three of them had been reported stolen. Three men were also hospitalized but those injured in the gunfight have refused to tell police who shot them and no witnesses will cooperate with police.

  1. You report on this shooting but no reports at all on the shooting of Justin Cooper in Panola County on August 19, 2018. Ridiculous!
