Police: Dogfighting ring in Miss. drew participants from around US; dozens charged after raid

Authorities say they've broken up a major dogfighting ring in Mississippi as part of a monthslong investigation that started in California and could involve participants from around the country.

David Murphy is an investigator with the Benton County Sheriff's Office in north Mississippi. He says at least 200 people were at the dogfight Saturday night when state and federal officers raided a barn in rural Benton County.

Murphy said Monday that nearly 50 people were arrested and authorities are looking for others who fled, many leaving behind their vehicles. At least 70 vehicles were seized.

He says shots were fired when officers arrived but nobody was hurt and authorities didn't return fire. About 20 dogs were rescued.

Admission to the fight was $100.
