TYLERTOWN,MS (WDAM) -

Kendall Magee, 29, has been arrested without bond in connection to the Sunday morning shooting death of Tyriunce "ToTo" Lewis of Tylertown.

According to Walthall County Sheriff Duane Dillon, Magee allegedly shot Lewis with a 32 caliber handgun outside of the suspect's apartment in the Oak Hurst apartment complex in Tylertown. Lewis was airlifted to Forrest General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Family and friends said Lewis confronted Magee at his apartment after learning that his girlfriend still had contact with Magee, who is her ex boyfriend. Dillon said Lewis was shot in the head, but an autopsy will determine what killed him due to there being more than one wound.

Lewis is the father of four young children and the brother of Mississippi State University football player Jameon Lewis. He was in Starkville the night before his death watching his brother play in the season opener against Southern Miss.

Lewis' cousin said he will be remembered for his caring heart and giving spirit.

Magee will have his initial appearance as early as Tuesday morning.
