Oxford Police Make Arrest for Murder on Saddle Creek Drive

The Oxford Police Department announced this afternoon the arrest of Justin Maurice Morris, 33 of Oxford, Mississippi. Morris has been formally charged with Murder and his bond has been set at $1 million by a Justice Court Judge

OPD received a 911 call from a neighbor in the 600 block of Saddle Creek Drive shortly after 1:00 am stating they heard yelling and then gunshots. Officers arrived and found Greteva Nicole Frierson, 29 of Oxford, Mississippi, suffering from a fatal gunshot wound.

Officers quickly learned that Morris was suspected in the shooting death. He was found in the 400 block of Saddle Creek Drive and taken into custody without incident. While the investigation is still in the early stages it appears to be domestic violence in nature.  

“This is a senseless tragedy and our hearts go out to the children, family, and friends of Miss Frierson,” said Chief Jeff McCutchen

If anyone has any information about what happened please call OPD at 662-232-2400 or CrimeStoppers at 662-234-8799.
