A man was pronounced dead at the scene of a shooting incident at the corner of Meigg and Penn streets Saturday night, Alcorn County Coroner Jay Jones said.
The victim’s name will be released after family members have been notified, Police Chief Ralph Dance said.
Dance added that a suspect is in custody but has not been charged. The suspect was apprehended at a local gas station, the chief said. The police officers did an “outstanding” job quickly apprehending the suspect, Dance added.
The victim’s body was in the road at the corner of Meigg and Penn streets, Jones said.
It was a “chaotic” scene, Jones added.
It appears the cause of death will be ruled homicide, and the motive is unknown.
The incident was reported to 911 at about 10:50 p.m.
