Christopher Liggons, 19, appeared in front of Dyersburg City Court Judge Dean Dedmon after his arrest in Brownsville, Tenn., on Tuesday. Liggons was appointed a public defender and Dedmon set his bond at $250,000.
Liggons' warrant for his arrest states the victim in the case, Richard Mays, said Liggons shot him until there were no more bullets left in the gun. After the shooting, Mays was airlifted to the Med in Memphis where he was treated for six gunshot wounds. He had been shot by a small-caliber gun Liggons reportedly used in the shooting. Mays was shot in the chin, ear, two times in the right hand, one time in the left hand, and the left shoulder blade. He was treated and released from the hospital the next day.
The victim knew Liggons by his street name "Insane" and later picked him out of a photo lineup. Dyersburg Police received a Crime Stoppers tip that Liggons was hiding out in Haywood County, Tenn. and Brownsville Police found him at a residence and arrested him.
Liggons remains in the Dyer County Jail and his next appearance in city court is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 4.
