A Columbus man is on the run and facing multiple felony charges after a Sunday afternoon shooting in a subdivision off of Highway 12 West saw one man injured.
The Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Office has identified the suspect as 28-year-old Demarcus D. Hayden.
He is described as being approximately 5-feet, 8-inches tall and weighing 135 pounds.
The Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Monday that at approximately 3:28 p.m. deputies responded to Chisholm Drive, in the Sunset subdivision, for a complaint of an aggravated assault.
The release says the victim, who has not been named, was transported to OCH Regional Medical Center for treatment.
OCH EMS Director Michael Hunt said on Sunday the male victim was then airlifted to University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson in critical condition.
At this time, Lt. Jon Davis said Hayden's charges include aggravated assault, kidnapping, grand larceny, and aggravated domestic violence.
Anyone with information about Hayden's whereabouts or this case are encouraged to contact the sheriff's department at (662) 323-2421.
