Lifesaving measures revive local
It was just a regular night at the G.W. Henderson Center. All around, people were breaking a sweat on the treadmills, weights, elipticals and track. Suddenly, a commotion arose as a patron collapsed.
On Jan. 25, North Tunica firefighter Will Townsend said a Rec Center staff member called his name as he was working out. He rushed to a small huddle of people, to find a man unresponsive.
Trio charged in shooting
Three suspects are being held at the Tunica County jail in connection with an incident on Monday, Jan. 31.
Deputies were dispatched to a business at 2598 Old Highway 61 after receiving calls of a shooting. Witnesses reported that a silver car, either an Impala or Malibu, drove by and occupants of the car began shooting. A bystander was shot in the right leg and was taken to Baptist Hospital in Southaven for treatment.
