A second person allegedly connected to a shooting that claimed four lives in Tunica County this past November could face the death penalty.

The Tunica County Sheriff’s Office reports that Anthony Carter, Jr., 20, is joining Deonte Taylor, 18, in being held criminally responsible for the deaths of Deshun Isabell, Steven Burts, Tednequa Moore, and Moore’s unborn child.

The incident took place on Friday, November 10, 2023, when police received a call from a passerby that a vehicle had run off the road and was possibly on fire on Casino Center Drive in Robinsonville.

Deputies arrived at the scene within a couple of minutes and noticed that the vehicle, with the deceased occupants, had struck a pole. Upon discovering the vehicle had been riddled with bullet holes, TCSO immediately initiated a homicide investigation.

Carter is charged with four counts of capital murder, four counts of conspiracy to commit a crime, one count of drive-by shooting, and one count of shooting into a motor vehicle stemming from the Casino Center Drive shooting.

The 20-year-old is also facing a laundry list of charges for his alleged connection in multiple other violent crimes. Carter is charged with attempted murder for attempting to shoot and kill Burts and Isabell twice prior to successfully striking the duo.

He also faces additional attempted murder charges for trying to kill Thako Jackson and Denzel Jackson in April 2023.

More arrests are expected in the November 10, 2023 shooting. TCSO and other agencies are continuing to investigate the fatal incident.
