All three are considered armed and dangerous. A Town of Tunica Police Officer, while on routine patrol, heard what he believed to be gunshots coming from the area around 2:30 AM. When he turned onto Delta Avenue, in route to Valero, he was confronted by two individuals running toward his patrol unit. One the individuals brandished a firearm toward the officer and was shot once by the officer. When Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the scene they found 21-year-old Tyrone Williams inside the business suffering from several gunshot wounds.
