Police are asking for the public’s help in finding two suspects with warrants out for their arrest on drive-by shooting charges.

The charges have been filed against Damaro Markeith Robertson, 25, and Rakim Savonta Jones, 16.

Robertson and Jones are wanted as the result of a drive-by shooting reported at 4:13 p.m. Thursday in the 4000 block of Ohio Avenue. The victim, who suffered injuries that were not life threatening, told police he had been shot by an unknown person in a black vehicle.

A news release from the Gulfport Police Department said investigators pinpointed Robertson and Jones as suspects in the case, then obtained warrants from Justice Court Judge Melvin Ray.

Anyone with information about the crime or whereabouts of the two suspects can call the police department at 228-868-5959. Information can be reported anonymously online to Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers or by calling the organization at 877-787-5898.
