Jalen Foote, 20, of Hazel Crest, Illinois was taken into custody but had to be transported to Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi due to moderate injuries sustained from the victims fighting back. Another victim was located and had to be transported with non-life threatening injuries.

Multiple gunshots had been discharged inside of the residence. The victims said that three or four individuals came into the house and began demanding money. A fight ensued shortly after which lead to the injuries and shooting. The other suspects were able to escape and fled in a smaller SUV towards Highway 30.
