Gulfport man charged in shooting at Ocean Springs bar

A Gulfport man is behind bars after allegedly shooting and injuring two people in downtown Ocean Springs this weekend.

21-year-old Jeremy Liberto is charged with two counts of aggravated assault. His bond was set at $250,000 per count for a total of $500,000.

Ocean Springs Police say Liberto was initially involved in a physical altercation with one of the victims at the Ocean Springs Daiquiri Company on Washington Avenue just before 11 p.m. Saturday night.

He then left, but returned 45 minutes later with a gun, shooting at the victims on the sidewalk in front of the building.

Liberto’s gun was taken from him by bystanders and he was detained until officers arrived and arrested him.

Both victims were taken to Ocean Springs Hospital by Acadian Ambulance. There is no word on their condition.

Liberto is being held at the Jackson County jail awaiting his initial court appearance.
