Madison county shooting: What happened?

According to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI), the incident involving the Madison County Sheriff’s Department took place in the Canton neighborhood of Oakfield Boulevard at 11:30 p.m.

Deputies were dispatched in response to a plea for assistance involving a domestic dispute at a residence where it is suspected the concerned party had already fatally harmed one person.

After hearing that the shooter was still in the neighborhood, officers arrived and discovered two of the victims close to the community entrance.

Police said the offender shot a third person while being chased by deputies to the neighborhood’s clubhouse.

Suspect and the Victim identification:

After being located, the suspect allegedly pulled a gun on police. Then, it is said that the suspect, later identified as 24-year-old Ladarrius Johnson, shot and killed himself. Johnson’s passing in front of the neighborhood pool on Oakfield Boulevard brought the incident to a quick end.

Three people were hurt overall during the incident, and one of them ultimately passed away from their wounds. Since then, the deceased person has been identified as Tiara Scott, 34, by Madison County Coroner Alex Breeland.

Breeland said,

“A tragic incident, domestic disturbance — that’s the way I would say it began. A young lady lost her life in the course of the actions,”

“And after exchanging gunfire with Madison County deputies, the suspect ended up taking his own life.”

Johnson’s girlfriend and another individual were shot as well. Their names weren’t made public.


There were no major physical injuries sustained by any of the deputies during the incident.

MBI is currently investigating the shooting and compiling information. Agents will communicate their findings to the attorney general’s office after the inquiry is over.
