Arrest Made in Biloxi Shooting: 58-year-old Suspect in Custody, Victim Identified by Police


Police arrested and charged a 58-year-old man in connection with a shooting in Biloxi that killed one person last week, police said Thursday. Julius Cesil Taylor Jr. was arrested on Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder and felony possession of a firearm, according to a news release from Biloxi police.

The arrest occurred days after the May 30 shooting in the 2700 block of Fernwood Road. The shooting killed Rodney Dabney, 53, of Biloxi, according to Harrison County Coroner Brian Switzer. Switzer said Dabney, who resided in the apartments where the incident occurred, died from a single gunshot wound. Police claimed the alleged suspect had also received gunshot wounds.

Police stated Dabney and Taylor were “involved in an altercation” before the shooting. During the incident, Taylor went to his home and retrieved a revolver, according to authorities. The release stated that a “struggle ensued.” When cops arrived in the area, authorities got reports of shots fired and a person being shot.

Police said officers discovered two males with gunshot wounds and took them to a nearby hospital. Dabney died in the hospital, and police reported last week that the injured guy was “receiving treatment” but did not reveal his condition.

Taylor was brought by police to the Harrison County Detention Center. He is being jailed on a $1,050,000 bond, according to authorities.
