Woodruff shooting, kidnapping suspect in custody, victim missing


Woodruff Police say Marcus Q. Todd turned himself in Tuesday afternoon.

He has a bond of $3,000 set on violation of probation. Attempted murder and kidnapping bonds will have to be set by a circuit court judge.

His day of initial appearance is set for July 14.

They are still looking for the victim who was shot and kidnapped.

The shooting happened on Woodruff St. in Woodruff.

More than 50 law enforcement officers and a helicopter were searching for the suspect at the beginning of the situation.

The chief says the suspect, Marcus Todd, shot 29-year-old Jermaine West multiple times in the front yard and then kidnapped him.

He says Todd picked him up and threw him in his vehicle and left.

Police said they didn’t know the condition of the victim Monday afternoon but that nobody had been taken to the hospital.

He said Todd and the victim were acquaintances.

The chief said this is the first time he has seen someone do something like this in his more than 20 years on the job.

Warrants have been signed for Todd’s arrest. The police chief said he was out on parole, and he had signed other warrants for his arrest this morning for violating parole for his involvement in a shooting on Woodruff Street in 2014.

The suspect vehicle is described as an early 2000s model Black Chevy Tahoe with a dealership tag.
