Bond set for man charged in Perry County shooting

PERRY COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Bond has been set for the man charged in Friday's Perry County shooting that resulted in one death.

Bond was set at $350,000 for 40 year-old Steve Freeman. Freeman has been charged with murder in the death of 38 year-old Darrell Madden. After an argument Friday night, Freeman shot Madden while he was at his residence, 63 Busby Drive in Perry County. Madden later died Saturday in Forrest General Hospital from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith says that there was an ongoing dispute between both Madden and Freeman that led up to the shooting; however, the motive is still under investigation.
