The three individuals who were being hunted down in connection with a domestic violence-related shooting in Southaven, Mississippi on Saturday, Feb. 26, have been arrested per reports.

According to Fox 13, the names of two of the three suspects in the said shooting. One of them was 19-year-old David Leshun Atmore who is charged with contributing to the delinquency and neglect of a minor, disorderly conduct-failure to obey, multiple traffic offenses, domestic violence-disturbing the peace and family, destroying city property, fleeing law enforcement, and possession of a stolen firearm according to authorities.

The second one was identified as Collin E. Phillips. The 20-year-old has been booked for contributing to the delinquency and neglect of a minor, and possession of a stolen firearm.

The third suspect is an 11-year-old who was cited with a juvenile summons for disorderly conduct-failure to obey. He was released to a guardian on the scene.

It was on Saturday when police responded to a reported domestic violence-related shooting over at the 600 block of Amber Lane at around 7:00 a.m.

When authorities arrived, the three suspects said to be behind the shooting scampered away and got on a car towards Airways Boulevard and Church Road.

Unfortunately, the vehicle the three were driving struck a marked Southaven Patrol Unit on Airways between Church Road and Nail Road. One of them was already apprehended but the two others fled to the woods.

According to officers, one of those fleeing suspects was armed with a handgun.

However, their escape was short-lived after authorities, assisted by the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office, put up a wide perimeter.

The two suspects were found around 8:15 a.m. by Southaven Police K-9 officers. They were immediately booked for questioning thereafter.

No one was injured in the incident. There was one stolen handgun retrieved in the vehicle.

Atmore is currently held at the DeSoto County Adult Detention Center in Hernando with a bond set at $250 each on the disorderly conduct charge, destroying city property, and contributing to the delinquency/neglect of a minor charge.

Phillips was booked but bonded out on Saturday.

The two are set to appear in court on Mar. 2 at 9:00 a.m.
