PERRY COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

UPDATE: Perry County authorities have identified the victim in Thursday night’s shooting as Hugo Hugger, which has ties to the shooter, and a missing woman in the county.

Hugger was named as a person of interest in the missing person case of Glin D. Street, who has been missing since Feb. 21, 2017.

According to Perry County Sheriff Mitch Nobles, the alleged shooter, Cyrus J. Street, is the son of Glin Street.

In previous reports, Hugger was the last person to see Glin, at her home on Forest Lake Road in Perry County. 

Hugger was previously released from custody, and not formally charged in the missing persons case. 

Earlier reports: 

One man is behind bars and another is recovering from multiple gunshot wounds after a shooting in Perry County.

Cyrus J. Street, 26, has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and currently booked in the Perry County Jail.

According to Perry County Sheriff Mitch Nobles, deputies along with New Augusta Police responded to a report of a shooting on Forest Lake Road around 4:00 p.m. Thursday.

“When we got on scene, we found a male victim suffering from two gunshot wounds to the head at the residence,” said Nobles. “We secured the scene, because initial reports said the shooter could possibly be inside, so once we secured the scene our initial investigation was able to begin.”

Street was arrested late Thursday night by Lucedale and Perry County authorities according to Nobles.

Nobles said the victim was air-lifted from the scene by Rescue 7 to Forrest General Hospital, where he is currently listed in stable condition.

As of right now the circumstances that lead to the story are still under investigation.
