The Tunica County Sheriff's department charged Coldwater resident Jamie Roberson Tuesday in connection to a deadly shooting that happened early Monday morning at the club Moe D's.
Investigators say the shooting stemmed from an altercation that happened last Friday with one of the victims, Richard Conard, who was killed in Monday's shooting. Roberson told investigators Conard shot at him in a Coldwater club.
"The bullet just grazed Roberson's head," said Larry Liddell, spokesperson for Tunica County. "The theory is Roberson retaliated when the alleged shooting happened."
Investigators say the four other victims of the Moe D's shooting, including the other victim who died, were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The owner of Moe D's was also charged with contributing to the delinquency of minors, because underage teens were in the club.
Liddell said deputies have been called to the club in the past, but never for a shooting. Now the Tunica County Sheriff is taking action against the owner of the club
"He is taking steps to revoke the license of the owner of Moe D's," Liddell said.
