3 face Easter shooting charges

Live Oak —

Three Live Oak men face charges for a shooting at an Easter egg hunt on Easter day, according to Live Oak Police Sgt. Justin Bates. 

According to Bates, Decroyo Green, 31, and Rossieq Jackson, 26, both of Live Oak, got into an argument behind African Baptist Church on Walker Avenue during an Easter egg hunt on Easter. The hunt was not sponsored by the church. The argument escalated into a physical fight. According to Bates, Aukeame Beasley, 24, Live Oak, then stabbed Green at which point the fight broke up.

As Green was fleeing the area, Jackson reportedly started shooting at Green from about 100 yards away. Green, armed himself, reportedly fired back at Jackson. The two were injured with an unknown number of injuries and transported to area hospitals where they both remain.

Bates said Green faces charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of cannabis. Jackson and Beasley, who also had a gun, face charges of attempted homicide and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. 

Beasley is still at large, according to Bates.
