A 21-year-old man was shot in the neck with a small caliber handgun Tuesday around 9 p.m. on County Road 140 in Clarke County.
Clarke County Sheriff Todd Kemp says, so far, the investigation points to the incident being a drug deal gone bad.
The victim, Brandon Reynolds, was hospitalized.
"He was transported from H.C. Watkins (Hospital) to Rush and kept overnight," said Kemp. "We do not believe it was life threatening."
Kemp said two men, Kalandrus Davis and Willie Davis, who are cousins, were taken into custody and were expected to be charged with the crime. According to the sheriff, they confessed.
A third suspect is also wanted, Alton Vale. Anyone with information is asked to call the Clarke County Sheriff's Department at 601-776-5252.
