NORTH CARROLLTON -- Two men law officials say were involved in the shooting at a North Carrollton gas station have been charged with aggravated assault.

According to Carroll County Sheriff Jerry Carver, two men he identified as Adrion Liddell, 24, and Tarvus Basin, 29, both of North Carrollton were charged with the shootings that took place at Shell-Go convenience store the night of July 22. According to Carver, Liddell was already out on a $10,000 bond and remains in custody at the Carroll-Montgomery Regional Correctional Facility in Vaiden. Basin’s bond was set at $10,000.

According to Carver, several altercations occurred between the two and as a result, Basin was jailed in the Leflore County Jail in Greenwood.

“Both of them say the other shot first,” Carver said.

Liddell received minor injuries in the shooting and was taken by private vehicle to a local hospital, where he was treated and released.

Carver said the incident stems from an altercation where Liddell was arrested and charged with aggravated assault for shooting into Basin’s vehicle on Mary Street in North Carrollton on the night of July 5. Investigators say Liddell shot into a Chevy Avalanche belonging to Basin. Investigators found nine millimeter shell casings at the scene. Prior to that evening, there was an alleged shoving incident, according to Carver.

Carver said the weapon allegedly used by Liddell in the shooting was a .22 caliber pistol. He said a nine millimeter weapon allegedly used by Basin was recovered.

Staying busy in North Carrollton

Carver said the deputies have been busy on the hill in North Carrollton, an area that has a reputation for some rowdiness in the past.

“There’s always something going on up there,” Carver said. “We have elderly people up there living, but it’s the younger crowd that gets rowdy at times.”

Carver pointed to an instance last week, where during a house party, someone was assaulted, but no charges were filed.

“Someone was hit with a beer bottle across the head during one of the house parties,” Carver said. “The victim didn’t want to file charges on whoever did it.”

Carver said typically the weekend is when the sheriff’s department gets the majority of the calls on that hill in North Carrollton.
