Suspect in Tuesday night shooting death in custody in Lowndes County
LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – The man wanted in a Tuesday night shooting is in custody.
Bobby Childs, Jr. turned himself into the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday evening.
Deputies believe Childs pulled the trigger in a shooting that happened Tuesday night on Jess Lyons Road.
Sheriff Eddie Hawkins says when deputies arrived they found 55-year-old Julius Wilson had been shot in the upper part of the body.
Witnesses told investigators Childs was arguing with a female at the 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.
