Morningstar Shooting Suspect Arrives in Sumter County

A man accused in the shooting death of a West Alabama man has waived extradition and been transported to Sumter County.

Sumter County Sheriff Tyrone Clark says U.S. Marshall's and other authorities have been working non-stop to try and locate the suspect, 36-year old Sherman Collins of New Orleans. Collins is accused of shooting and killing 31-year old Detrick Bell of York, AL on June 16th at the Morningstar Community Center.

Sheriff Clark says it is not clear at this time why Collins was at the Morningstar Community Center on June 16th, which is when Bell was shot to death. Clark says Collins is now facing a murder charge. Authorities also have Angela Jackson and Kelvin Wrenn in custody as well, but Sheriff Clark says evidence shows Collins is the shooter.

Clark says he can't say whether any additional arrests are expected in this case.
