One of Two Shooting Suspects in Custody; Other Remains at Large

The Oxford Police Department is looking for a man they say was involved in a shooting Monday, while the other suspect has been taken into custody.

At about 7 p.m. Monday, officers with OPD responded to Cedarcrest Drive in Brittany Woods Estates where they learned that two men were shooting at each other after an altercation.

Christoper Mathis

One of the suspects, Christopher Mathis, 40, of Oxford was detained by patrol on the scene.

Investigators found some of the bullets had entered occupied homes in the surrounding area; however, no one was injured, including the two suspects.

Christopher Butler

The second suspect, Christopher Butler, 29, of Oxford is still at large. Butler was arrested in April and charged with drive-by shooting in an unrelated incident. He was out on a $100,000 bond at the time of Monday’s incident and is awaiting trial.

Mathis was transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center where he was booked for shooting into an occupied dwelling and possession of a weapon by a felon and given a bond of $200,000 by a Justice Court Judge.

OPD is asking anyone with information on Butler’s whereabouts to contract OPD at 662-232-2400 or CrimeStoppers at 662-234-8477.
