A Starkville man wanted for attempted murder was taken into custody four days after the suspect reportedly shot an individual.
Oktibehha County Sheriff Shank Phelps confirms that Roy Lee Fuller, Jr., is now in custody after evading law enforcement for several days. Fuller was captured at a hotel in Houston, Mississippi after police received a tip about his whereabouts.
The suspect is accused of shooting an unidentified male individual on Tuesday night. The victim was sent to a hospital for treatment and is said to be in stable condition. Fuller currently faces attempted murder charges.
The Starkville Police Department, Mathiston Police Department, Webster County Sheriff’s Department, Houston Police Department, and Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Department assisted the Oktibehha County Sheriff’s Department in the case.
“The assistance provided by area agencies has been exemplary and shows what dedicated officers can accomplish when they work together,” Phelps stated.
