DYERSBURG, TN (KFVS) -

Dyersburg, Tennessee police say six people are facing attempted murder charges in connection with a shooting Wednesday night that left one man injured.

The following were charged with attempted murder and booked into the Dyer Co. Law Enforcement Complex pending a court appearance on Friday morning:

Marcus Barbee, 33, of Dyersburg; Billy Fowlkes, 19, of Dyersburg; Marvin Dennis, 17, of Halls; Tyjzuan Moore, 19, of Dyersburg; Tony Tyus, 24, of Ripley and Orlando Cox, 24, of Dyersburg.

According to Dyersburg Assistant Police Chief Steve Isbell, an officer was patrolling the area of East Court and Liberty Street around 10:10 p.m. when he heard a number of gunshots.

The officer immediately drove toward Liberty Street and continued to hear the gunfire.

The officer saw a large SUV leaving the area and turned on Broadway Street. A traffic stop was conducted which resulted in all six occupants being detained.

More officers responded to Liberty Street, where a 22 year old Dyersburg man had been injured by the gunshots. The victim was taken to Dyersburg Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers recovered two handguns in the area that are believed to have been used in the shooting, along with other evidence both at the scene and in the SUV.
