COLUMBUS, Miss. – (WCBI) A $1 million bond is set for a 19-year-old Columbus man accused of killing another man.
Derrick Nelson is charged with murder in the shooting death of 29-year old Willie Hood during an argument outside the home on Pine St. where they both lived.
The shooting occurred at about 1:30 a.m Saturday. Nelson turned himself in to police Saturday night and was taken before Columbus City Judge Nicole Clinkscales Monday afternoon. Police have released few details about a possible motive but friends of the family say it may have been the result of a dispute between Nelson and Hood over Nelson’s mother.
