GULFPORT -- Three Gulfport teenagers and a parolee have been arrested in a Jan. 6 drive-by shooting in the 14200 block of Creekwood Cove.

Creekwood Cove is north of O'Neal Road and Glenwood Place, which is north of Northwood Church.

No injuries were reported as a result of the shooting but the investigation indicates what prompted the shooting didn't start that day, police Sgt. Damon McDaniel said.

He said Derrick Rashawn Bowie, 17; Noah James Favre, 18; Trinity Sally-Jade Copp, 18; and Thomas James Shaw, 21, were arrested Wednesday at different locations.

Shaw is suspected of trying to burglarize the same house on a different day, McDaniel said. Shaw was on parole for grand larceny.

Bowie has been charged as an adult under a state law involving crimes of violence.

McDaniel said patrol officers went to a home about 12:30 a.m. and a resident reported shots had been fired that hit his house and vehicles in the driveway.

McDaniel said investigators have an idea what may have led to the shooting.

"We think we have a motive but we can't release that at this time," he said.

The four were taken to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center.

Justice Court Judges Melvin Ray and Dianne Ladner set their bonds at $100,000 each.

Shaw also was arrested on a parole warrant and an attempted burglary charge.

Police also arrested Favre on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana and another narcotic.
