Shooting Suspect Captured This Morning at Local Retailer By WCSO


A shooting suspect from Attala County was apprehended by the Winston County Sheriff’s Office this morning at the Louisville Wal Mart. Ryan Steen (21) was the subject of a B.O.L.O. issued by Attala County authorities in connection with a shooting of a female overnight at a residence on Hwy 12 West.

Sheriff officers received a tip that Steen was seen outside the Louisville Wal Mart at around 10:30 am this morning. Law enforcement was able to identify Steen and isolate him at the south side of the structure away from the public and make the arrest.

A heavy law enforcement presence resulted in little resistance from the suspect. A weapon was confiscated and Steen was taken to the Winston Choctaw County Regional Correctional Facility. Since that time, officials from the Attala County Sheriff's Office have arrived to return Steen to Attala County.

The victim in the Attala County shooting was airlifted  to a Jackson Hospital and last reports indicated that she was in critical but stable condition.
