One man is dead, and another is behind bars and facing a million dollar bond after a weekend shooting in Marion County.

Cortney Brister, 29, died at Forrest General Hospital from what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds he suffered in an incident in the 300 block of Jones Road.

According to authorities the incident occurred around 4 p.m. Saturday at the home on Jones Road.

Marion County Coroner Norma Williamson said that the body was sent to the State Crime Lab in Jackson for an autopsy.

Ka’Shodrick Johnson, 25, turned himself in at the scene according to Marion County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Jamie Singley.

Johnson made his initial appearance Monday afternoon and his bond was set at $1 million.

Singley added that a .40 caliber handgun was recovered from Johnson, and another handgun was recovered near Brister.

“There was not an exchange of gunfire between the two, even though a weapon was found near Brister,” said Singley.

Singley could not elaborate on the nature of the altercation that led to the shooting; however he added that it is still under investigation.
