EUPORA, Miss (WTVA) - A criminal complaint outlines new federal charges for one person as well as sheds light onto a shooting incident near Eupora High School.
Authorities responded to a report of shots fired near Eupora High school on March 28. Nathaniel Cole Breazeale was arrested the same day in connection to the incident.
New documents reveal that eye witnesses saw Breazeale riding a red dirt motorbike when he fired six shots. Investigators found the empty shell casings less than 500 feet directly behind the Eupora High School band building.
The affidavit show that Breazeale actually rode through campus first before ending up on Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive where he's accused of firing the shots.
The gun he used was never found but a search of his home turned up two other guns. He also admitted to using drugs.
He now faces federal charges of possessing a weapon not registered to him, discharging/possessing a firearm in a school zone and possessing a firearm as a current drug user.
He is in custody in Webster County on a $1,000,000 bond and is expected to appear in federal court Wednesday.
