The suspects, two Spanish speaking men, are still at large.

Marietta Horton lives in the apartments at Tall Pines and tells News 25 when she woke up this morning and saw police surrounding the area she didn’t know how to react to the awful news of what happened to her neighbors. “This ain’t the first time that someone has died in Pascagoula or second who has been shot. It’s repeatedly and folks not realizing people actually losing their kids out here to the streets and they don’t even got to be involved. It’s the principle of being in the wrong place at the wrong time or somebody want to rob you because they see you doing better. It’s just crazy. This needs to stop and it’s not stopping, but it needs to stop.”
