HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - The second suspect in last weekend’s Turtle Creek Mall shooting was denied bond Friday afternoon in Municipal Court.

Cassius Taylor, 18, Hattiesburg, appeared before Hattiesburg Municipal Court Judge Brian Bledsoe and was denied bond on four counts of aggravated assault in connection with the March 4 incident that reportedly occurred in the mall’s food court.

Taylor was also given a $500 bond on an unrelated malicious mischief charge.

Taylor claimed in court to be out on bond from at least two charges in Lamar County prior to the mall incident.

A 16-year-old juvenile female was turned in Saturday and also faces four charges of aggravated assault in connection to the shooting. She also was denied bond earlier this week.
