KEMPER COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) - Kemper County investigators are on the lookout for three people involved in a deadly weekend shooting.

Sheriff James Moore said Marquise Crosby, 26, was shot and killed while at a large gathering at a field on Highway 495 S. A 22-year-old woman was also shot in the leg. She has been released from the hospital. Sheriff Moore said Saturday night’s shooting was chaotic.

“We were trying to get control to see who was doing the shooting and who was hit to get them emergency care,” Moore said. “It was total chaos. I had about 10 to 12 officers on scene. It was absolutely no where near enough to deal with 2,500 people.”

If you have information about Saturday night’s deadly shooting, call the Kemper County Sheriff’s Department at 601-743-2255 or Crimestoppers at 855-485-TIPS.

“We need a lot more information to put this case together,” Moore explained. “We do have some and I want to say to the people that hear about this is that there were a lot of people that saw a lot of stuff that’s very important to this investigation. We are going to ask that you please come forward.”
