MACON, Miss. (WTVA) - A Noxubee County fugitive, captured in Tennessee, is on her way back to Mississippi.

Noxubee County Sheriff Terry Grassaree says his deputies left Tennessee with Amber Lynn Boyd sometime near 11:30 Monday morning.

She was wanted for aggravated assault. 

She's accused of luring a man to Highway 45 on June 1. When he got there, three men shot several rounds into his vehicle. One bullet grazed the victim.
