A Panola County woman has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with shooting at another person in a Senatobia neighborhood.
Lieutenant Brannon Rushing from the Criminal Investigations Division of the Senatobia Police Department identified the suspect as Myesha House, 29, of Sardis. House was taken into custody Wednesday, June 1, and later released from the Tate County Jail under a $200,000 bond.
Rushing said officers responded to reports of a shooting June 1 at approximately 6 p.m., at the intersection of East Gilmore and Scott Streets. An uninjured female subject on scene told police another female, she identified as House, fired a gun at her while she was sitting in a vehicle at the intersection. Evidence suggests at least one shot struck the vehicle near where the subject was sitting, according to Rushing.
Senatobia police put out a BOLO on the suspect including a description of the vehicle she was driving. Meanwhile, an investigator with the Senatobia Police Department reviewed the incident and developed enough probable cause to arrest House, according to Rushing. Surrounding law enforcement agencies were alerted to detain the suspect once she was located.
Rushing said officials with the Panola County Sheriff’s Department located House later in the day at approximately 7:30 p.m., occupying the described vehicle. She was detained by PCSO deputies, and later transported by police officers to Senatobia where she was officially charged.
This incident remains under investigation and further arrests are possible, according to Rushing. Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact Detective Don McCarrens at 662-366-1795.
