Vicksburg man out of jail on charge in shooting

Published 12:00 am Thursday, August 27, 2009

A Vicksburg man released on bond Wednesday was charged with a shooting two months ago that left another man in a Jackson hospital.

Kevin Buck, 24, 20 Waterwell Road, is accused of shooting Terry Brown, 35, 609 Kings Crossing, once after a fight at a cookout June 22 at 605 Hutson St., Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. Buck is accused of leaving the house, retrieving a shotgun and returning to shoot Brown, Stewart said.

He had remained on the run until Wednesday when “officers spotted him and he ran again,” Stewart said. He was arrested after officers spotted him at about 4 p.m. in a ditch at Kings Crossing and Curry Street.

Fire destroys home on Nailor Road

Two Warren County people suffered smoke inhalation early this morning as a fire destroyed their home.

Tommy Alexander and Glenda Busby, both of 4813 Nailor Road Lot 30, reported the fire at their mobile home at Payne’s Trailer Park just before 3.

“The fire was accidental, but it was a total loss,” said Kelly Worthy, Warren County volunteer fire coordinator.

Trucks from Fisher Ferry, LeTourneau and Culkin volunteer fire departments arrived at 2:52 a.m. and had the flames under control by 3:45 a.m., Worthy said.

The departments stayed until 5:22 a.m. “to make sure there were no hot spots,” Worthy said. “It was contained to the house.”

A spokesman for River Region Medical Center said he had no record of the two being treated at the hospital.
