NESHOBA COUNTY, Miss (WTOK) - One person is dead after an afternoon shooting in Neshoba County yesterday.

Sheriff Tommy Waddell says the incident happened on County Road 737 at a mobile home. He says the home was in the middle of being remodeled and some people that were inside got into an argument over a dice game.

He says the argument led to the shooting of a young adult, who later died at a Meridian hospital. The sheriff’s department is now searching for a suspect named Marcelo Young.

If you know where he is you are urged to call the Neshoba County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff Waddell warns that if you are helping Marcelo Young hide, then you will be charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
