Police: Man shot and killed at apartments in Mississippi

April 7, 2018

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Police say a man who shot and killed another man at an apartment complex in Mississippi has turned himself in.

Hattiesburg police tell news outlets 26-year-old Jonathon Darnell Jones shot 20-year-old Mark Gould on Thursday. Police say Jones’ cousin, 23-year-old Theodore Jones, also turned himself in. Jonathon Jones is charged with murder and Theodore Jones will be charged with accessory after the fact of murder.

Police spokesman Ryan Moore says officers who were called out to the apartments found Gould’s body. Police believe he may have been involved in a fight moments before the shooting and was attempting to leave when he was shot.

Moore says an investigation is ongoing.

It is unclear if either Jones has a lawyer.
