For the second time in less than a week the Unique Social Club, located at 129 Wilson Ave. in Drew, was the site of a shooting.

The Drew Police Department was called to the popular nightclub for the first incident around 10:30 p.m. Friday evening.

"When officers arrived on the scene Friday they found four individuals with gun shot wounds," said Simon Bush, interim police chief. "The initial investigation showed that an altercation of some kind started outside of the club and shots were fired by at least two parties. At this time, all indications point to gang activity as the motive."

Bush went on to say that three of the four victims were inside the club when the shooting started.

"Antionette Jones, Mary Covington and Adrian Darby, all residents of Drew, were inside the club when they were shot," said Bush. "The bullets traveled through the walls of the club from the outside. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening."

Covington and Darby were transported to the emergency room at North Sunflower Medical Center in Ruleville for treatment before being released. Jones was transported by ambulance to Bolivar Medical Center where she was later transported to the University Medical Center in Jackson for further medical attention.

The fourth victim was identified as Derrick "Muff" Williams, 28, of Drew, who was also one of the shooters involved in the altercation.

As of Tuesday afternoon Williams and Terrance "T.Y." Young, 22, of Drew were in custody. Williams stands charged with three counts of aggravated assault while Young has been charged with four counts.

A third suspect, Dylvester Watts, 19, of Drew,fled the scene and the U.S. Marshals Service have been asked to assist the DPD in his apprehension.

While Bush said that the department has received several "solid" tips on the whereabouts of Watts he has still alluded capture as of this morning.

Williams and Young were being held in the Drew jail until Tuesday afternoon when they were transported to the Sunflower County Jail after a judge set their bonds at $45,000 and $55,000. They were both still in custody as of this morning.

The second incident occurred on Monday night at the club and the police department was once again called with reports of shots fired.

"When the call came in on Monday night, officers responded to the scene and attempted to stop Terrance Brock, 47, of Drew, who was fleeing in a vehicle," said Bush. "Luckily no one was injured when Brock shot into the club or when he was fleeing from our officers."

Brock stands charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling, five counts of running a stop sign, simple assault on a police officer, felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, resisting arrest, reckless driving, failure to yield for blue lights, and no proof of insurance.

Brock is currently being held at the Drew Jail awaiting his initial appearance before a judge.
