GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Police say two men have been arrested in connection with a killing.

Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson tells news outlets that 19-year-old Dannie Wayne Bergeron Jr. was arrested on a count of murder, while 21-year-old Jacob Tyler Scaife was arrested on a count of accessory after the fact to murder.

Peterson says deputies responded to a report of a woman being shot Saturday and found the 27-year-old victim in the garage with a gunshot wound to the head.

Witnesses told deputies that Bergeron was responsible for the shooting. Investigators learned that the pair fled to Louisiana to a relative’s house.

Bergeron and Scaife were located at the relative’s house and taken into custody. It’s unclear if the men have lawyers.
