GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) — Police in Mississippi say 10 people have been arrested in connection with two shootings last week.

Greenwood police Chief Ray Moore tells The Greenwood Commonwealth more arrests are expected. Four people were charged in the shootings Monday afternoon.

Police say 21-year-olds Kevontae Williams and Malik Pitts, 24-year-old Deme-trius Davis and a 17-year-old boy were charged with offenses including five counts of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

They remained jailed Monday in Leflore County. It's unclear if they have lawyers.

No one was injured when bullets were fired into a home in the first shooting July 18. But, less than an hour later police found a woman shot inside a car blocks away. She was in stable condition Friday.

Evidence from both scenes led police to the arrests.
