WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) - Police in West Point say they have new evidence that may help solve the murder investigation of a 21-year-old woman.
Dajah Shaw lost her life during a concert last year just after Thanksgiving.
The shooting took place at the former Bryan Union Hall, where Memphis rapper Moneybagg Yo performed.
Now, West Point police are revisiting the case with a new investigator.
“He’s working the case now, said Police Chief Avery Cook. "We have some new evidence that we have at the crime lab.”
Cook says he’s unable to release what the new evidence is at the moment.
“Once we get that back we’ll have some new information and may have some arrests,” Cook added.
The incident shook up one partygoer who described the shots being fired last year.
“We were just sitting there having a good time partying, all of a sudden we just heard some pops," said one man at the party last year. “I thought it was balloons, but somebody was shooting guns at the club. We all just started panicking and hit the floor.”
Shell casings from two different guns were found at the scene, but Chief Cook says it’s unclear what led up to the shooting.
They have been in contact with Shaw’s family and expect lab results from the new evidence as soon as next week.
If you have any information about this incident, you’re asked to contact West Point Police Department at 662-494-1244.
