Gray said the sheds of both homes were demolished and the yards were littered with debris.

Clay County residents looking to purchase a firearm may want to wait until September, when Mississippi will offer a tax-free holiday for the purchase of guns and gun accessories.
Gov. Phil Bryant signed Senate Bill 2425 into law April 2, which will take effect July 1, giving Mississippi a tax-free holiday the first weekend in September every year going forward.
The Mississippi Second Amendment Weekend will include tax exemption on individual sales of firearms, firearm accessories, ammunition, archery equipment and certain hunting supplies.
