Hopkinsville Police Chief Clayton Sumner took to Facebook Thursday to share that Hopkinsville police have arrested three individuals involved in a gang responsible for several shootings dating back to 2019 and requested the public’s assistance in locating three more gang members.
“As most of you are aware in 2019 our city began to see an increase in shooting incidents,” Sumner said on Facebook.
“Fortunately, many of these incidents did not lead to anyone being seriously injured. However, the unrest this type of behavior causes a community is nothing any of us, as citizens, should stand for!”
Sumner continued to explain that over the last year and a half, HPD’s investigative unit has continued to investigate the shooting incidents and were able to make progress on apprehending the individuals responsible for the shootings.
Sumner wrote that a local gang known as “Face Shot Gang” or “FSG” is responsible for the recent shooting.
“The Hopkinsville Police Department has identified a group known as FSG or “Face Shot Gang” as being responsible for dozens of separate shooting incidents in our community,” Sumner said.
As previously reported, Tyresse Hollowell, 21, Isaiah Henderson, 20, and Jayden Weaver, 18, all of Hopkinsville, were each served indictment warrants Saturday and charged with one count of engaging in organized crime.
Sumner explained that the three men are members of the criminal gang and were served warrants for their involvement in the gang.
“There are several members of this crime syndicate that we have not yet been able to arrest for their indictment as part of this investigation,” Sumner said.
“Knowing that no one in our community condones this type of behavior, we are asking for your assistance in helping us locate (three other) individuals.”
HPD is requesting assistance in locating Antoniyon Cayce, 19, Emonie Evans, and Jacquez Redd, 21.
HPD asks that if you have information regarding these individuals to contact the department at 270-890-1300.
