Death Probe Underway

By  | 

Last month we brought you the story of a woman found shot to death along a Neshoba County road.

Newton County investigators are looking into a similar case.

Around 4:30 a.m. Friday, a young man was found shot to death along McDonald Road in the Conehatta community.

Investigators say it appears the man was shot a few hours earlier. He has not been identified.

Officials say the victim was a young black male between 18 and 23 years old.

Sheriff Jackie Knight said autopsy results could be available as early as Tuesday.
