A Hattiesburg man is behind bars in connection to a Hub City shooting.

Timothy Frost, 33, was arrested Friday night and charged with aggravated assault, according to Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler.

On Sept. 16, officers responded to the 1500 block of James Street in reference to shots being fired and a fight.
