CLINTON, Mississippi — Clinton police have arrested a possible suspect in connection with the shooting death of a 21-year-old man.
The Clarion-Ledger reports (http://on.thec-l.com/11PDHRQ ) that Mark Nichols' body was discovered Saturday night on the side of a road in Clinton. Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said Nichols was killed by a single gunshot wound to his head.
Clinton's interim police chief, Mike Warren, said investigators planned to question Tommy Bass, of Clinton, in connection with the case before determining whether to charge him in the killing.
Bass was wanted on an arrest warrant for a contempt charge and surrendered to police Sunday.
Warren said police believe Nichols and Bass were "in competition for a woman" who told police she hadn't seen Nichols since early Saturday.
