Sixth suspect arrested for throwing paint on clothes at Vicksburg Wal-Mart

VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A sixth person has been arrested for her alleged involvement in an incident at the Wal-Mart in Vicksburg where thousands of dollars of clothes were sprayed with paint.

Vicksburg Deputy Police Chief John Dolan tells the Vicksburg Post that 19-year-old Shamarios Hunter turned herself in earlier this week.

Dolan says Hunter is the third adult and sixth person charged with felony malicious mischief. Previously, 20-year-old Brittany Mathews and 18-year-old Brittany Hollie and three juveniles, ages 12, 15 and 17, were arrested on the same charges.

Dolan says the incident occurred Sunday morning when paint was taken from the store's hardware section and sprayed on the clothes.
