A Hattiesburg man is behind bars in connection with a Sunday shooting in the Hub City.

Omar Donaldson, 28, was arrested shortly after police responded to the shooting in the 100 block of Montague Drive. Donaldson was charged with one count of aggravated assault and booked at the Forrest County Jail.

“Officers found a victim who advised that Donaldson had fired several shots at him and fled in a white SUV,” Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler said. “The victim was not struck in his body with any of the bullets, but his shirt was.”

Officers located Donaldson in the 1200 block of Beverly Hills Road at an apartment, and the SUV was recovered at the apartment as well.
