St. Martin teenager charged with aggravated assault

A St. Martin teenager is in the Jackson County Adult Detention Center after allegedly shooting two men Thursday night.

Sheriff Mike Ezell says deputies found one of the victims lying on the ground when they responded around 10:30 to Bridge Water Park Apartments on Big Ridge Road. The other victim told deputies his brother got into a fight with 18-year-old Fa’Darius Williams and Williams started shooting and drove off.

Investigators and officers with the South Mississippi Metro Enforcement Team later found Williams at his home in St. Martin. Sheriff Ezell says Williams was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault. A search of the home turned up several stolen firearms.

The investigation is ongoing. Both victims are in ICU at Ocean Springs Hospital. Williams is held without bond, awaiting an initial court hearing.
