An early morning raid by members of the Greene County Sheriff’s Department, the Department of Public Safety and other outside agencies led to seven arrests and the confiscation of several guns – hand guns, long guns and assault guns.
According to Greene County Deputy Jeremy Rancher, the officers entered the residence on Wilson Avenue in Eutaw on the strength of search warrants and arrest warrants. The charges against the men stemmed from an assault on Desmond Knott at a local club on October 16. Knott was shot in the leg during what appeared to be an attempted robbery and/or assault. Shots were fired into the vehicle and when Knott ran, the assailants began shooting at him. He was taken to a local emergency room by private vehicle.
All of the seven men arrested are charged with attempted murder. Timothy Powell and Joe Nathan Hutton, Jr. are also charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle.
Rancher refused to comment on whether or not more arrests were pending.
