Anthony Qualls, 19, made his initial court appearance Tuesday in the Warren County Justice Court.

Qualls is charged with three counts of aggravated assault in connection with a shooting that occurred just after midnight Sunday, March 8. Two men and one woman were shot at a bonfire in the China Grove community.

The men, 22-year-old twin brothers, were transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson with gunshot wounds to their abdomens. The woman, 21, was shot in the leg and was treated at Merit Health River Region. All of the victims are Warren County residents. Their conditions are not known.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace indicated that the shooting may have been targeted to the brothers. It is unclear whether the woman was a target or was hit by a stray bullet. The sheriff has declined to release the names of the victims.

Judge James Jefferson set Qualls’ bond at $750,000. He is being held in the Warren County Jail and bound over to the grand jury.

A high-speed chase Saturday evening that began near the Waffle House in Vicksburg has ended in a crash in Claiborne County and a vehicle in flames.

First reports indicated the incident began around 5:10 p.m. as an argument at the Waffle House at 4100 Pemberton Square Blvd. A man and woman left the scene and stopped at a Shell gas station on U.S. Highway 61 South where the man pulled the woman, who is pregnant, out of the vehicle by her hair.

The man, Bonjara O’Quin of Chicago, then fled, leading Vicksburg police officer Michael Battle on a high-speed chase south on 61 South. The chase exceeded 110 mph at times.

The chase ended just inside the Claiborne County line on Shiloh Road in a crash where the vehicle, a rented 2021 Nissan Rogue with Illinois plates, burst into flames. The crash occurred right at 5:30 p.m.

O’Quin is in custody and received minor injuries in the crash. He was treated and released from Merit Health River Region. He has been charged with domestic violence and felon elude. The woman involved received very minor injuries and is apparently safe.

Deputies with the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Department, and troopers with the Mississippi Highway Patrol assisted in O’Quin’s capture.
