Newton Shooting Victim Making Progress

By  | 

Newton, Miss. Authorities say a Newton woman is alert and trying to talk just a week after being shot in the head.

Newton Police Chief Harvey Curry says Ronnie Dale Davis shot Brenda Buckley in the head during a domestic dispute early last Saturday morning. Davis was quickly apprehended and Buckley has been receiving treatment at UMC in Jackson since then.

Chief Curry says the best news though is that Buckley is showing signs of improvement.
