The suspect in last week’s shooting in Picayune, 27-year-old Jaron Stubbs of 400 N. Abrams Ave., turned himself in early Monday morning to the Picayune Police Department, said Picayune Police Department’s Assistant Chief Jeremy Magri.
Last Wednesday, officers responded to a call concerning gunshots in the area of North Jackson Avenue off of East Canal Street. Patrols were sent out to search the area, but found nothing, until the victim from the shooting arrived at the police department, and told police that a male subject, described as Stubbs, shot at his car with what appeared to be an assault rifle at Third Street and North Jackson Avenue, Magri said.
Once police arrived at the scene, they found that the victim’s car was shot once, and stray bullets from what appeared to be an assault rifle struck three houses in the area, Magri added.
On Tuesday, the judge set Stubbs bond at a total of $100,000. Stubbs was charged with aggravated assault, resulting in a bond of $40,000 and three counts of shooting into a dwelling for a bond of $20,000 each, Magri said.
Stubbs will remain in jail until he makes bond, Magri said.
