The Selma Police Department is still searching for four of the seven suspects tied to a neighborhood shooting that occurred two weeks ago.

Police are still searching for Kenyada Dukes, Lamarious Prince, William Earl Calhoun and Darryl Dewayne Johnson who are all believed to be involved with the incident in the 2300 block of Hardie Avenue.

“We haven’t gotten any further information on their location at this point, but we’re still out there looking and of course, we keep getting information that they’re out of our area,” Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley said Tuesday, noting that the department has received tips regarding the suspects, suggesting they may have left the state.

“Four suspects are still at large, and at the moment, we’re still running any leads that may come in that people point us to. Anyone that calls, we’ll follow that lead down to the best of our abilities,” Riley said, adding that the department is contacting other law enforcement agencies to try and help locate the suspects.

During the shooting, several occupied homes and buildings were hit, Riley said, adding that thankfully no one was injured in the incident.

“We’re hoping that between our search and the public’s, we’ll be able to locate the remaining suspects,” Riley said in a previous interview with the Times-Journal. “Also, if we find out someone is hiding them, we will charge them accordingly.”

Riley asked that people continue to call in with tips, and remember that the suspects are considered dangerous.

“We ask that if you should see them, not to approach them, but just to notify the police department as soon as possible,” Riley said. “We don’t want anyone approaching them, just notifying the local authorities, because we’re dealing with individuals that we feel are a danger to society and we’d like to get them apprehended as soon as possible.”

James Bender, Ernest Gunn and Theodore Thespian Stallworth have been arrested and placed in the Dallas County Jail under a $2.7 million bond, charged with attempt to commit murder, discharging a firearm into an occupied building and discharging a firearm into an unoccupied vehicle.
