Alma police look for shooting suspects


Two shooting suspects and another man wanted for drug possession remain on the loose, but Alma police say they're getting closer and the three are running out of places to hide.

"We're getting information from citizens and we seem to be gaining on them," explained Alma police deputy chief Jerry Blash.

Friday night, police received a complaint that Westley Kennedy had fired shots at a car full of people in a parking lot at the corner of 16th & Baker streets.

Early Saturday, witnesses called police and claimed Davalon Brinson opened fire toward a house with adults and children inside. 

"That's a very very dangerous thing when shots are fired. Bullets have nobody's name on them," Blash noted.

In addition, police continue to search for Marcelle Jenkins, who they say took off running after police stopped him in his pickup truck and found marijuana and other drugs inside.

Blash said they've checked several locations for each of the men, in some cases getting reports that one of them had been at that spot recently. In fact, Bacon County Sheriff's deputies went to the homes of Kennedy's parents to look for him.

During those respective searches, deputies said they found things besides the son. Irene Kennedy was charged with possession of meth with intent to distribute. Kennedy's father, Charlie Cummings, was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after deputies found a gun and an estimated $20,000 in stolen property.

"We can't have these guys on the street. We've got to show people that this is their town and we're going to protect it," Blash assured.

Anyone with information about the men are asked to call Alma Police at 912.632.8751.
