Bond revoked for suspect involved in deadly 195 Fruitland Park shooting
FORREST COUNTY, Miss. (WDAM) - Bond has been revoked for a suspect involved in the deadly 195 Fruitland Park shooting from this past weekend.
On Friday, 23-year-old Montrell Malik Quinn II of Hattiesburg had his first appearance in court at the Forrest County Adult Detention Center.
Quinn’s bond was originally set at $500,000 in Forrest County; however, due to a multi-count indictment in Lamar County, his bond was revoked.
According to Forrest County Prosecutor Mary Lee Holmes, Quinn has six other charges in Lamar County. He was previously arrested in Lamar County in 2020, where he was involved in a chase following a traffic stop.
Since his bond is revoked in Lamar County, Holmes said Quinn would have to resolve his ongoing indictments in Lamar County before he’s considered for bond in Forrest County. If his bond is reinstated, he will be put on house arrest if he is ever released.
According to the Forrest County Sheriff’s Office, Quinn was arrested and charged with attempted aggravated assault on Wednesday, in connection to a shooting that happened during the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 29.
FCSO said four people were shot during the incident, with one of the victims, 21-year-old Jade Rhodes of Oak Grove, receiving fatal injuries.
Holmes said Quinn is not being charged in Rhodes’ death, but charges could be upgraded as the investigation continues.
Holmes also said there may be upgraded charges if evidence from the investigation shows that there was illegal street gang activity taking place during the shooting, specifically if there was gunfire being exchanged by two rival gang members.
Quinn is scheduled to have his preliminary hearing at the Forrest County Adult Detention Center on Dec. 1 at 9 a.m.
