Shooting in Greenwood Leaves One Injured

A Greenwood man lands himself behind bars after being connected to a shooting last week.

28-year-old Zarphya Moody has been charged with attempted murder.

On Friday around 10:30 p.m., Officers received a call about a shot person along the intersection of Fulton and Gibbs Street. When officers arrived at the scene they discovered there was an altercation between Moody and the victim, a 44-year-old male whose name has not been released.

Authorities say Moody shot the victim once, he was treated at the Greenwood-Leflore Hospital, then later released.

Moody is currently being held at the Leflore County Jail, and bond has been denied, because he was already out on a prior felony bond.

Chief Ray Moore says, "From what the victim stated he had loaned the suspect some money several months ago, and he confronted him wanting his money back, and the individual pulled a gun out on him. The victim had took off running and was hit one time in the shoulder in the back area. He had drove himself home, and then somebody drove him to the hospital for treatment. When officers responded to the scene they recovered numerous shell casings at the scene. We were able to take the suspect into custody Saturday morning at about 8:30."

Chief Moore says they have recovered the weapon they believe was used in the shooting. It has been sent to the crime lab to confirm.
