Mississippi Mass Shooting: 6 High School Students Wounded

Two high schoolers are dead and four more are in serious condition at the hospital after a teenager opened fire at a house party in southern Mississippi.

The Biloxi Sun Herald reported early Sunday that the shootings happened overnight Saturday in Bay St. Louis, about 29 miles (46 kilometers) west of Biloxi.

A 16-year-old and 18-year-old died as a result of their injuries, but their names have not been released.

In total, six students were shot and taken to area hospital. Three were listed in critical condition and three were in serious condition in the shooting’s immediate aftermath, officials said.

Two of the victims are students at Bay High School in Bay St. Louis. Four of the students attend Hancock High School in Kiln, 13 miles (21 kilometers) northwest of Bay St. Louis.

Video from the incident showed multiple gunshots were fired in the incident.

None of the victims attended Bay High´s prom, which was held earlier Saturday night.

The victims were all between 15 and 18 years old. Four victims were taken to the hospital by medical helicopter.

The house where the party was held is less than a mile from the Hollywood Casino.

Police say they arrested Cameron Everett Brand, 19, as the sole shooter at the party. He was charged with six counts of aggravated assault and is being held in a Mississippi jail on $3million bail.

Brand was arrested at his home without incident.

A motive has not been released and police have not said what led to the deadly encounter at the home along Mississippi’s coast.
