An Itta Bena man has been charged with three counts of attempted murder in connection with a July 12 shooting.
The Leflore County Sheriff’s Department charged Orlando Harris, 31, 304 Cleveland St., on Thursday.
Sheriff Ricky Banks said Harris is accused of shooting three people along Rainey Alley in Itta Bena around 9 p.m. July 12.
The victims were later taken to Greenwood Leflore Hospital, where the Sheriff’s Department was informed. Banks declined to name the victims.
Harris evaded local law enforcement and wound up in Memphis. U.S. marshals eventually caught him and brought him back to Leflore County to be charged, Banks said. As of Friday, Harris was still behind bars.
