Altercation Between Employees at Oxford, Mississippi Restaurant Leads to Drive-By Shooting and Arrest

On Sunday, November 3, 2019, at around 2 pm, officers responded to Buffalo Wild Wings for a panic alarm. Once on scene the responding officer learned that there had been a shooting outside of the business.

During the course of the investigation officers learned that the suspect, Bobby Parks (22 of Sarah, Mississippi), had been in an altercation the night before at Buffalo Wild Wings where he was an employee.

The next day he was outside of the business and mistaken a patron on the patio for the other employee he had the altercation with. Parks was picked up by an unknown person in a silver BMW. As they were leaving he fired approximately six shots towards that person and Buffalo Wild Wings.

Thankfully, no one was injured

OPD officers located Parks shortly after where he was taken into custody without incident. The weapon was also recovered.

Parks was arrested and transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center where he was booked for shooting into a dwelling. He was given a bond of $200,000 by a Justice Court Judge.

This is still an ongoing investigation. More arrests are possible. If you have any information please call the Oxford Police Department at 662-232-2400 or CrimeStoppers at 662-234-8477.
