GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — Fallout continues from a St. Nicholas Day shooting at the Greenwood Country Club. Three more teenagers and a 20-year-old have been charged, two in the last week. In all six people have been arrested in connection with the shooting which injured 24-year-old Demetrus Davis. Leflore County Sheriff said 16-year-old Robert Moore III was picked up by the Greenwood Police Department Dec. 26 for a misdemeanor simple assault charge and was later found to be connected to the country club shooting. 18-year-old Deshezer Jackson was arrested on December 27 and is believed to be the person who drove the other suspects to and from the scene. He is charged with accessory before and after the fact of aggravated assault with a firearm. Also facing various charges in the incident are 20-year-old Deandre Jackson, 19-year-old Alfred Kemp, 18-year-old Christopher McNelson, and 15-year-old Robert Love III, all of whom were detained in a December 28th raid by county and city law enforcement officers at a residence in the Bishop Apartments. During the raid, two assault rifles, one shotgun, one revolver and a backpack full of ammunition of various calibers were confiscated, some of which were fully loaded. Davis was shot as part of what authorities suspect was a “turf fight” around 9:00 PM on December 6th outside of the country club, where he worked as a member of the kitchen staff. He was reportedly shot in the leg and groin area as well as the neck and is recovering from his injuries according to the Sheriff.
