From the VPD:

The Vicksburg Police Department detained two individuals for questioning after they eluded police yesterday, Sept. 4, 2019, around 6 p.m. in a 2007 Toyota Camry. In the area of Lane’s Alley, three men jumped out of the vehicle and fled into a wooded area.

Police were investigating a shots fired call in the area of Farmer and Jefferson streets where the alleged shooters were riding in a white Toyota Camry with the back window missing. Vicksburg police spotted the vehicle in the area of Cherry and Shannon streets, and it sped off, failing to stop for the officer’s lights and siren. The vehicle later stopped in the area of Lane’s Alley where three men left the vehicle on foot and ran into a wooded area, where they were able to elude police.

Police were able to identify two of the men: Quinterrious Vincent McCoy, 22, of 2001 Ford St. and Ricky Dewayne Larkins Jr., 23, of 1101 First North St.  Police received information that the two men were seen in the 1300 block of Walnut Street around 8:30 a.m. today, Sept. 5. They were detained at the Relax Inn, 1313 Walnut St., after they were found hiding in a breezeway of the hotel. Both men are being detained for questioning at this time. They are currently being held in the Madison County Detention Center. Both men are out on bond for other felonies.

Police also recovered weapons from yesterday and today, which have all been reported stolen. The men will possibly face charges of possession of stolen firearms and possession of firearms by convicted felons.

If anyone has additional information concerning the third person involved, or have other information about this investigation please call the Vicksburg Police Department at 601.636.2511 or Crime Stoppers at 601.355.TIPS or visit www.p3tips.com.
