On July 29, 2013 Jones County Sheriff’s Department received a call in reference to a suspicious vehicle in the 300 block of Louie Bullock Road.  The report indicated that two white males pulled in the driveway of this location got out and ran.

 

When deputies arrived on the scene, a witness told them what direction the men had fled.  Earlier deputies had received notice that a vehicle matching the one on Louie Bullock Road had been stolen from Covington County.

 

K-9 Officer Shadow was called in and began tracking the suspects which led them back to the 300 block of Louie Bullock Road.  As deputies approached Guthrie Carter a single gunshot was heard coming from a nearby residence.  The deputies then went to the residence after learning the homeowner had shot the subject they were tracking for attempting to steal his riding lawn mower.  The shooting victim was identified as Timothy McDaniel, a 39 year old white male of Kevin Road in the Rainey Community. 

 

Emergency Services were called to the scene and McDaniel was transported to Forrest General Hospital where he underwent surgery for his injuries.  He is currently listed in critical condition.  The investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are forth coming.
