Shooting suspect faces assault charge
Marshall County 911 received a call at 12:18 p.m. February 16 advising a subject had been shot at H&R Grocery on Cayce Road and the subject was bleeding, according to the sheriff’s department.
Responding deputies, on arrival at H&R Grocery (located north of the Victoria community), found a man had been shot in the face, sheriff Kenny Dickerson said. The victim was transported by ambulance to The Med in Memphis, Tenn.
Witnesses described the person responsible for the shooting as a black male in his 40s, wearing a white T-shirt and a blue hoodie. The shooter fled the scene.
That afternoon, Randy C. Jones, 41, of the 400 block of Gordon Street, Holly Springs, was charged in the Justice Court of Marshall County with aggravated assault, Sheriff Dickerson said.
A warrant for the arrest of Jones was issued by Justice Court Judge Mae Garrison. Investigators with the Marshall County Sheriff's Department and Holly Springs Police Department arrested Jones at his residence shortly after the warrant was issued by the court, according to Dickerson.
The assigned investigator for this case is Lieutenant Jason Mills. Major Kelly McMillen is commander of investigations for the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.
Habitat for Humanity seeks volunteers
The Marshall County chapter of Habitat for Humanity is seeking new members. Churches or civic groups looking for opportunities for mission work are urged to join Habitat for Humanity’s efforts.

Persons are also needed for the board of directors.
Call 252-1306 for more information on Habitat for Humanity. One house is in the building stage.
“Help us provide affordable housing,” Mason said.
