Man Accused Of Shooting Around Four Rankin County Schools Speaks Out

Metro

Thursday Police told us Tevis Weeks fired gun shots at the Indian Creek Apartments in Florence, before running off on foot. Police conducted a manhunt for Mr. Weeks. Saturday Weeks called into the station saying he is afraid for his life, and most importantly he is being pursued for a crime he did not commit.

 

Tevis Weeks said “I’m being shot at and the police are really against me. It’s like now they can do anything to me,  and really get away with it.”

 

Tevis Weeks said Thursday was a quiet day for the most part. Until an altercation with his girlfriend’s son went awry, Weeks said that’s when the son shot at him.

 

Weeks said “He turned around and shot the gun with his right hand. It was a black pistol. He shot it at my foot. I sat there for a minute and turned around. I walked off around the apartments. Then I walked back.”

 

More words were passed. Then Weeks said he saw his girlfriend and her family threatening to call the police. That’s when he ran away.

 

Tevis Weeks said ” His mama screamed. When she said call the police I took off because I already had warrants. “

 

Next, four schools in the area of the apartments were locked down, as members of law enforcement tried to track down Weeks.

 

Weeks said he hoped surveillance video at an apartment complex would clear his name.

 

Weeks said “They said I was wearing a white tee shirt. And blue jeans. The gunman was wearing a black shirt with blue jeans.  Why hasn’t surveillance been released.”

 

Weeks family members said they were afraid for his life. They said the 23-year-old suffered from mental issues, and was unable to take his medication while hiding from authorities. They wanted Rankin County officials to admit Weeks was not the shooter Thursday.

 

Shamorra Weeks the sister of Tevis Weeks said “It can cause real damage or harm to my brother. People can get away with it because you are saying he is armed and dangerous. My brother doesn’t own a gun. Never owned a gun. The guy who actually had the gun was shooting at Tevis.”

 

Some residents at Indian Creek Apartments said they saw the shooting Thursday. Weeks was not the gunman. They declined to go on camera. Weeks said he had warrants out for minor violations not in connection with Thursday’s shooting. He said he would be willing to come forward but was afraid for his life. We poke with Police Chief Richard Thomas with Rankin County. He said Weeks is the person of interest in connection with the shooting Thursday. He declined an interview today but said he might be open to one Monday.
