Gulfport police arrested Decarlos Neshunn Holloway, a felon from Gulfport, in a drive-by shooting that wounded a man in the Gaston Point community.
Police Sgt. Damon McDaniel said Holloway, 28, was arrested Thursday night at a residence in Moss Point.
The shooting was reported about 12:40 p.m. Thursday in front of Brothers Mini Mart at 4613 Old Pass Road. The store was known as M&S Food Mart when a fatal shooting occurred there in January.
Investigators have determined the wounded man was standing in the store's parking lot when Holloway drove by in a silver Cadillac and fired a weapon, hitting the man several times, McDaniel said. The wounded man was taken to a hospital on a private vehicle before police arrived. He was reported to be stable Friday at the hospital.
Never miss a local story.
A motive and if or how the two knew each other remains under investigation, McDaniel said.
Holloway is held at the Harrison County jail. Justice Court Judge Diane Ladner set his bond at $100,000. He isn't eligible to post bail because of a pending felony charge and a probation warrant on a felony conviction.
Holloway had been accused in two other drive-by shootings.
Gulfport police had arrested him in a drive-by reported July 21, 2011, on 30th Avenue. He was 24 when he was accused of driving beside another man's vehicle and firing a shot at him. Police reported one round struck the targeted man, requiring hospital treatment. At the time, police said Holloway was out of jail on bond on a different drive-by charge.
The 2011 drive-by charge was passed to court files, apparently about the time Holloway was serving a prison term in 2012 for felon carrying a concealed weapon. A disposition on the earlier drive-by charge was not immediately available.
Gulfport police arrested him Dec. 17, 2014, on a charge of possession with intent to distribute cocaine. He received a $200,000 bond and was held on a parole warrant on the weapon conviction, the county jail docket shows. It wasn't clear if his parole was revoked.
He was arrested March 24 after indictment on the cocaine charge. He was released from jail on the original bond of $200,000 pending court action.
His bond on the cocaine charge was revoked after his arrest Thursday night.
Holloway also is held on a probation warrant from the Mississippi Department of Corrections on the weapon conviction, according to the jail docket.
Raymond Howze III, 19, of Gulfport, was fatally shot in front of the same business address Jan. 11. Police have said a man shot him, stole his car and drove it to New Mexico. That man, D'Juan Holloway, faces a capital murder charge. D'Juan Holloway has not yet been extradited to Gulfport.
D'Juan Holloway and Decarlos Holloway are not related, McDaniel said.
