Authorties with the Bay St. Louis Police Department are asking for your help in locating a Gulfport man wanted for questioning in a Wednesday night shooting at Martin Luther King Park on Washington Street in Bay St. Louis.

Bay St. Louis Police Chief Gary Ponthieux said in a press release that the department is searching for 18-year-old Armon Joesph Crawford of Gulfport.

If you or anyone you know has information regarding Crawford’s whereabout your asked to contact Bay St. Louis authorities at 228-467-9222 or Crimestoppers at 1-877-787-5898. If you wish to remain anonymous you may do so.

Ponthieux confirmed two men had been shot at the park on Wednesday around 7:25 p.m. One of the men is said to be in “critical condition’ and the other suffered a “non-life threatening” gunshot wound.

Less than an hour later, a second shooting occurred less than a mile away at the 200 block of Watts Street just around the corner from the park. Witnesses say a home with a family inside was shot up but no injuries were reported in that incident, Ponthieux said.
