Lowndes County jury indicts man in connection with deadly shooting

LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – A Lowndes County jury indicted a man in connection with a December 2022 deadly shooting.

Bobby Childs Jr was indicted on the charge of first-degree murder.

The shooting happened on Jess Lyons Road.

55-year-old Julius Wilson was shot in the upper part of the body.

At the time, witnesses told investigators Childs was arguing with a female at an apartment complex. A child then called a family member who drove to the apartment.

That’s when deputies believe Wilson and Childs started arguing and that led to the gunfire.

No court date has been set.
