Water Valley, Mississippi Man and Three Juveniles Arrested for Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling in Oxford

On Wednesday, July 17, 2019, at approximately 1:00 am, the Oxford Police Department responded to 1711 Anderson Road for a reported shooting.

Officers arrived and found that an apartment had been shot at multiple times. Four suspicious males were found near the scene with firearms in their car but officers didn’t have enough to arrest them.

Later that morning another call came in that residents on Olive Branch Way found their house and cars had been shot. Investigators sent the firearms from the suspicious males and ballistics to the Mississippi State Crime Lab who confirmed that those guns were used in the shootings.

Arrest warrants for three counts of shooting into an occupied dwelling were issued for Lakreston Willingham (24 of Water Valley, Mississippi) along with three juvenile males. They have all since been arrested and transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center where they were each given a $150,000 bond by a Justice Court Judge.

Note: OPD is erring on the side of caution with not releasing the juveniles’ names and booking photos, even though they have been charged as adults, until after grand jury meets.
