Woman charged in Kahuna’s Bar shooting in Ocean Springs

An Ocean Springs woman has been charged with murder after a shooting at a bar early Saturday morning left one man dead.

Thirty-six year-old Melinda Tennort voluntarily went to Ocean Springs police to speak with authorities on her knowledge of the shooting at Kahuna’s Bar on Bienville Boulevard shortly after midnight Saturday.

After claiming she knew nothing of the shooting, investigators felt there was enough evidence to charge Tennort with murder.

Police are now searching for 47-year-old Deshaude Jones wanted for the murder of Troy Taylor. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jones is urged to contact Ocean Springs police.
