Shooting under investigation
Tunica police are accustomed to dealing with extra traffic during the town’s annual Rivergate Festival, but officers weren’t counting on a crime victim driving downtown Friday afternoon.
The woman driver was shot in the back on Beat Line Road east of Highway 61, when an unidentified suspect or suspects opened fire on her car about 4:30 p.m. April 25. The woman was able to drive herself to Magnolia Street in town, next to police headquarters.
Information sought on robbery
The Tunica County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in an April 28 robbery at Bally’s Casino.
The suspect is described as a black male, with medium build and a light complexion, wearing sunglasses, a black hoodie and skull cap and khaki pants.
Tornadoes devastate MS towns
Communities all over Mississippi are recovering this week from a massive storm system that moved into the state Sunday night.
Tunica County was under severe thunderstorm, tornado and flash flood watches and warnings most of Sunday afternoon and evening and into Monday morning, with bouts of heavy rain, some small hail and thunder, lightning, and one possible tornado sighting near Clayton occurring.
But the storm saved its wrath for northeast and central parts of the state. Tupelo, Louisville and Brandon were hit by tornadoes Monday afternoon; all three sustained significant damage to homes and businesses.
