On March 9, around 11:30 p.m. officers with the Gluckstadt Police Department attempted to make a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle at Interstate 55 and Gluckstadt Road.
The 2003 black Honda Civic fled from officers at this time traveling southbound on Interstate 55 eventually exiting onto the 463 exit in Madison.
The suspect vehicle then turned onto Galleria Parkway at which time the passenger began firing shots at officers forcing Gluckstadt police officers to exchange fire with the suspects. The suspect vehicle then ran off the roadway into a wooded area just north of Garden Park.
The suspects jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the wooded area.
Upon further investigation, officers learned that the 2003 black Honda Civic had been stolen in an Armed Carjacking from Canton, Mississippi on March 4, 2023.
With the assistance of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department three suspects were detained in the area of Industrial Drive South and transported to the sheriff’s department after giving false Information.

17-year-old Anteious A. Edwards Jr. who is a juvenile being charged as an adult is charged with Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement x2 and Receiving Stolen Property.
A third suspect has been released at this time with no pending charges.
