Just before 4:30 p.m., a Warren County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop a black sedan on Clay near its intersection with Hope.
The vehicle appeared to comply and then fled from the deputy, WC-49, Thomas McBride. The vehicle turned onto Hope and then to Baldwin Ferry where it proceeded at a high rate of speed. It then crossed Mission 66 where the deputy terminated the chase. A couple of minutes later a call came over the radio that a vehicle matching the same description as the one that fled from Deputy McBride had crashed into a light pole in front of a home on East Magnolia.
Units from the VPD were observed circling the area with blue lights on, presumably looking for the passengers of the black sedan. The sedan had two noticeable bullet holes on the driver’s side of the vehicle. A weapon resembling an AR or AK that fires 5.56 caliber rounds was recovered from the vehicle. A phone was connected to the vehicle and rang several times while police were working the accident scene.
WC-49, McBride, recovered the vehicle for the Sheriff’s Department and had the vehicle towed to a location for further investigation.
The Vicksburg Daily News will update this story as more information is made available.
