On July 8, 2019, Pearl River County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched to #6 Cheetah Lane, Picayune, in reference to the report of domestic violence in progress.

According to Sheriff David Allison, Narcotic’s Deputies were also in the area and responded to assist with the call due to the fact the caller stated the male involved in the domestic assault had a firearm as well.
