BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (WJTV) – Bay St. Louis police arrested a suspect after a shooting killed and injured multiple teenagers during a house party.

The shooting happened just after midnight on Sunday, April 30 in the 1000 block of Old Blue Meadow Road.

Students had gathered for a party at the home on a sparsely populated road after Bay High School’s prom. Local news outlets reported that trails of blood could be seen on the pavement Sunday outside the home, while cars were peppered with bullet holes. The home is less than a mile from Bay High.

When police arrived, they found multiple people suffering from gunshot wounds. Some shooting victims had already been taken to local hospitals by private vehicles. Police said the victims were between the ages of 15 and 18.

During their investigation, police identified the suspect as Cameron Brand, of Pass Christian. Police said they located Brand at his home and arrested him. He was charged with six counts of aggravated assault, and his bond was initially set at $3,000,000.

Police said they identified six total victims. Four were taken by ambulance or airlifted to trauma center hospitals in New Orleans and Slidell, Louisiana.

Bay St. Louis police were later notified by the Hancock County Coroner’s Office that an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old, who are both unidentified, died from their injuries after being treated at the University Medical Center in New Orleans.

Both of the teens who died had attended nearby Hancock High School in Kiln, officials in that school district said. Two more Hancock High students were shot and wounded, as were two students from Bay High. Those are the only two public high schools in Hancock County, on the western end of the Mississippi Gulf Coast between New Orleans and Gulfport.

“Our hearts are broken as we mourn the tragic loss of two Hancock High School students who were victims of the shooting in Bay St. Louis last night,” the Hancock County school district said in a statement, saying counselors would be available Monday at school. “Let us come together as a community to show our support and love during this difficult time.”

Sandra Reed, superintendent of the Bay St. Louis-Waveland school district, said both of the wounded Bay High students were expected to recover. Bay High Principal Amy Necaise said the school was making faculty and staff available on campus Sunday afternoon to counsel students.

Police upgraded the charges against Brandon to homicide. Judge Stephen Maggie issued a warrant with no bond. It is unclear if Brand has a lawyer to speak for him.
