OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) – Oxford police have charged a 22-year-old Lafayette County man with manslaughter-culpable negligence following the death of an Oxford woman.
On Wednesday, Oxford police were at Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi on an unrelated call when 19-year-old Laquisha Marshall of Oxford came in with a gunshot wound to her back. She later died at a Memphis hospital from her injury.
Officers determined the shooting happened in the city. Police later identified the location as the parking lot of the Burger King on University Avenue. The shooting happened sometime near 4:30 p.m.
However, police say the shooting appears to be accidental.
Oxford Police Chief Joey East says a vehicle with four people inside stopped in the restaurant's parking lot to drop someone off at work.
According to East, a gun went off after being mishandled. The bullet went through Marshall's seat and hit her in the back.
During the investigation, police identified the shooter as Jadarius Harmon of Taylor. Police say Harmon helped rush Marshall to the hospital. The two are described as friends.
On Thursday, Harmon was charged with manslaughter-culpable negligence. A judge set bond at $10,000.
