Authorities still hunting for two suspects

Vicksburg Police are continuing their search for two men wanted in separate drive-by shooting cases.

Tony Dewayne Smoots Jr., 20, 502 Farmer St., faces charges of drive-by shooting and aggravated assault in the reported April 19 shooting of Jamario Hawkins, 18, in the parking lot of JP&K Foods Convenience Store, 2607 Halls Ferry Road.

Keyuadre Futlz, 21, Edwards, is wanted by police in connection with a May 13 running gunfight on Drummond Street involving two vehicles.

The gunfight began about 12:18 p.m. May 13 at Drummond and Bowmar Avenue when what was described as a small white car began chasing a small silver pickup, with the occupants of the vehicles exchanging gunfire.

The chase ended on Forest Street when the truck wrecked and the two occupants fled on foot in the direction of National Street. Witnesses said the car drove off at a high rate of speed on Drummond in the direction of Lee Street.

Fultz is suspected of being the driver of the car involved in the incident.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of either man can call crime stoppers at 601.355.T.I.P.S. (8477) or 1-866-481-8477, or log on to www.centralmscrimestoppers.com/www.P3tips.com or call Vicksburg Police at 601.636.2511. Both men are considered armed and dangerous.
