A 14-year-old resident of Leflore County has been charged in gunfire that occurred at the Glendale subdivision last month.

The Sheriff’s Department charged Kyler Matthews, 1004 Clay Ave., Apt. 14, with four counts of aggravated assault.

Though Matthews is a minor, he has been charged as an adult, Sheriff Ricky Banks said. Matthews is being kept in an isolation cell at the Leflore County Jail, separate from the adult inmates.

Banks said the shooting occurred around 2 a.m. July 21.

Matthews allegedly shot at an occupied vehicle several times, with some of the stray bullets hitting several buildings. Banks said no one was hit.

As of Friday, Matthews was still behind bars.
