HATTIESBURG, MS -

A Purvis man was killed Sunday morning in a shooting at Club Memories in Hattiesburg, and four people are behind bars in connection to the crime.

Kenneth Smith, 36, was pronounced dead at Forrest General Hospital shortly after the shooting that took place around 2 a.m. at Club Memories off N. 31st Avenue.

“Police were dispatched to the club and when they arrived they discovered a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen,” Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler said.

Below are the people arrested and their charges: 

  • Jimmie Lee Magee, 30, of Prentiss, was charged with murder, and his bond was set at $1 million.
  • Samuel Walker, 23, of Prentiss, was charged with accessory after the fact of murder and his bond was set at $100,000.

According to Forrest County Deputy Coroner Lisa Klem, Smith’s body was sent to the state crime lab in Jackson for an autopsy.

Traxler added that the investigation was ongoing, and that he could not rule out if other arrests are possible.

This is the city of Hattiesburg’s fifth homicide of the year, all of which have been cleared by arrest by the Hattiesburg Police Department.
