Chicot Memorial

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — A gun battle in the 500 block of Hope Street over the weekend left one man dead. 19-year-old Timoty Jerome James was found dead at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds when Greenwood police officers arrived at the residence around 4:30 PM Saturday. A bystander, 41-year-old Afredquick Smith, was hospitalized when he was hit by a stray bullet in the leg. 22-year-old Quandarius Dewuan Silas turned himself in several hours later. Police believe the killing is an isolated incident, resulting from an argument between the two men that escalated into violence. After seeing no homicides throughout 2017, James death marks the third killing in the city of Greenwood this year.
