Brown Missionary Baptist Church‘s two Southaven campuses canceled all in-person events on Wednesday following a threat of a shooting at the church. 

The Southaven Police Department said a man called just before noon Wednesday and said that “at a specific time, they were going to ‘shoot up’ the church.” Police said that during the investigation they were able to “develop a suspect” and that suspect was later taken into custody at the scene. 

Police said that Quincy A. Higgins has been charged with terroristic threatening. Higgins also had an active warrant for contempt of court.

“We are mothers and fathers as well, and we would like to put out as much information as we can during the active scene,” the SPD statement said. “However, this would not be prudent, or safe for the officers on scene.”
