A Hollandale man turned himself into Greenville police this week for a shooting at a laundromat that sent one man to the hospital.
Fifty-year-old Delvecchio Potts, of Hollandale, has been arrested for shooting a 42-year-old male in the parking lot of Mr. B’s Coin Laundry, 1472 S. Colorado St.
At 5:51 p.m. Jan. 9, officers with the Greenville Police Department received a call of a shot person at “the laundromat.
“Upon arrival, they discovered a 42-year-old black male shot several times in the parking lot of the laundromat," Assistant Police Chief Michael Merchant said.
Merchant said the victim arrived at the location after he received a text message from the phone of a woman, who is the wife of the suspect.
“The female was on scene when her husband arrived on scene and allegedly used her phone to text her child’s father (the victim),” Merchant said.
Once the father arrived on scene, shots were fired by Potts, the woman’s husband, who then fled the scene.
The victim, whose name has not been released, was transported by Pafford EMS to Delta Regional Medical Center, where he was then flown to a Jackson hospital in critical condition. He was last listed in stable condition.
Potts turned himself in to the Greenville Police Department Jan. 14 and has been charged with attempted murder. He did not have a bond as of press time.
“Potts surrendered himself to the Greenville Police Department without incident,” Merchant said.
