Triple shooting leaves 1 dead, 2 hurt

CRYSTAL SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - A triple shooting has left one man dead and sent two others to an area hospital.

The shooting, allegedly stemming from a drug deal, happened just after 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

Twenty-5-year-old Tomaro Finley and his mother, 45-year-old Berinda Finley were shot, but survived. Finley is listed in fair condition, while his mother's injuries were not as serious.

Authorities say 21-year-old Javaris Green was also shot. His cousin and brother placed him in a car and fled the scene, leading to a police chase. Police stopped the car and called paramedics, but Green died on the scene.

According to police, Green's brother, Christopher Green, was driving the car. He was booked on a charge of felony fleeing, various traffic violations and trying to run a police officer off the road.

Authorities say charges are pending against Marcus Green, his cousin, who was a passenger in the car.
