Jacksonians arrested in weekend shooting


RIDGELAND — Four people have been arrested and two charged as adults in connection with a shooting in the Hawthorn Green subdivision over the weekend.

Ridgeland Police Chief Brian Myers said the four have been charged in the shooting which occurred on Saturday, Feb. 3. 

“I would like to thank our officers and detectives for their dedication and determination as we responded, investigated, developed and pursued these suspects,” Myers said.  

He said two of those arrested will be charged as adults although they are under the age of 18.

Those two are Terrence Terrill Watson and Moeshia Tateuna Tawanaa Paige.

Paige, 17, of 409 Houston Avenue, Jackson, was arrested and charged as an adult with shooting into a dwelling and conspiracy.

Terrence Terrill Watson, 16, of 1805 Hospital Drive, Jackson, was arrested and charged as an adult with shooting into a dwelling and conspiracy.

Authorities have also identified Jazanae Alondria Johnson and Marquerious Lecell Martin as suspects charged in the case.

Martin, 20, 3664 Newman Avenue, Jackson, and Johnson, 19, 4662 Kirkland Drive, Jackson, were both arrested and charged with shooting into a dwelling and conspiracy. 

Ridgeland Police responded to the report of multiple shots fired into a home located off of William Boulevard at about 12:14 a.m., Myers said.  

“There was no one at home during the incident and there were no injuries,’ Myers said. 

Investigators were called out and the scene was thoroughly processed for evidence, he said. This incident stems from an ongoing dispute between a juvenile resident of the home and another female, according to Myers. 

Johnson and Paige were the first two arrested, according to Myers.

Jail records show Watson and Martin were arrested on Friday, Feb. 9.

“With the assistance of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force we were able to safely arrest Martin and Watson this morning in Jackson,” Myers said. “Valuable evidence has been recovered to link these suspects to this crime.” 

All will be held with no bond in the Madison County Detention Center. Preliminary Hearings are set for Tuesday, Feb. 27.
