Ripley shooting suspect still on run after two weeks

(WMC-TV) - Dexter Coleman has been eluding authorities for nearly two weeks now after a violent home invasion and shooting in the Autumn Hills subdivision in Ripley, Tennessee.

Neighbors there say it is normally pretty quiet, and on any given day, littered with kids.

But two weeks ago, the scene was much different.

"It don't make you feel too good when somebody gets shot in front of your house," says neighbor Ricky Tucker.

"I was getting my kids ready for school and I heard something, I thought something fell and the next thing I know, I heard sirens," adds April Hammock.

Mike Mitchell lives just next door to April Hammock.

Police say Mitchell was shot after two men kicked in his door and demanded money.

Neighbors say drugs were taken from the home, along with several thousand dollars.

"I think they let him in, shot him, when he opened the door, shot him going down the hallway," Tucker adds.

Deputies from Lauderdale, Tipton, and Haywood counties and the Jackson Police Department chased the two suspects to a field next to the Brownsville Fire Station.

Brownsville police say the two suspects, Carlos Hall and Dexter Coleman, took off in their car zig-zagging in and out of the corn fields near the Brownsville by-pass.

They jumped out of their cars and were captured in a cow pasture just off Clinton drive.

Police arrested Carlos Hall.

However, Dexter Coleman of Covington is still on the run.

"He did shoot the victim with an assault rifle in Lauderdale County so we do consider him to be armed and dangerous," says Chuck Willis with the Brownsville Police Department.

If you see Dexter Coleman or know where he might be, call the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department.

That number is 731-635-1311.
