Home Invasion on Chickasaw Road in Oxford, Mississippi Leads to Shootout with Multiple Victims; Some Suspects Still At Large
On Monday, December 16, 2019, at approximately 8:38 pm, officers with the Oxford Police Department responded to a residence on Chickasaw Road for a report of someone who had been shot. Officers arrived to a chaotic scene with multiple people with injuries. One of the victims had a critical gunshot wound to the chest area. First aid was administered immediately while EMS was in route. The victim was subsequently transported to the North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Victims began pointing to one of the subjects, who was still on scene, as one of the shooters. Jalen Foote (20 of Hazel Crest, Illinois) was taken into custody but had to be transported to Baptist Memorial Hospital North Mississippi due to moderate injuries sustained from the victims fighting back. Another victim was located and had to be transported with non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators arrived and began processing the scene. They discovered that multiple gunshots had been discharged inside of the residence. The victims said that three or four individuals came into the house and began demanding money. A fight ensued shortly after which lead to the injuries and shooting. The other suspects were able to escape and fled in a smaller SUV towards Highway 30.
Jalen Foote is at the Lafayette County Detention Center and is being charged with aggravated assault and home invasion. He is currently awaiting his initial appearance with a Justice Court Judge.
