Man indicted on multiple counts in 2019 drive-by shooting

A Vicksburg man has been indicted on multiple charges involving a July 2019 drive-by shooting in the 1200 block of Second North Street in which shots were fired at a house.

The multi-count indictment handed down by the May Warren County grand jury against Antwon Jacobs, 30, 1001 First East St. No. C, charges him with drive-by shooting, shooting into a dwelling and three counts of aggravated assault in the incident, which occurred July 10, 2019.

According to Vicksburg police reports, the charges stem from an argument involving Jones and a female companion and the residents of the home.

The couple believed one of the people in the house stole a bicycle and went to the house to confront the alleged thief. When they got to the house, an argument occurred and the couple got into the car and shots were fired at the house as they drove off.

Officers later stopped the car the couple was in and took them into custody. According to Circuit Court records, the case against the woman was closed and she was not charged in the incident.
