Shooting Leaves Teen in Critical Condition

April 15, 2007--Posted at 9:35 pm CDT

Weiner- A Poinsett County man is in critical condition in the Med at Memphis after being shot in the head.

Sheriff's detectives say it happened during a fight just outside of Weiner around 2:00 a.m. Police are trying to sort out exactly what took place.

Poinsett county sheriff's detectives say 17 people - ranging in age from 15 to 26 got into an all- out brawl.

It's unclear exactly who started the fight, but witnesses tell K8 News that it involved a group from Harrisburg and one from Weiner.

Detective Mark Robinson says this is rare because the fight quickly got out of hand. A number of cars were damaged using everything from a crowbar to the cover off of the water meter.

A 15-year-old was beaten and taken to the hospital. When it was over, 18-year-old Aaron Davis had been shot in the head. 

Robinson says they're not releasing the name of the shooter unless he's charged. Davis may have been shot in self defense. The shooting is under investigation at this time.
