COLLINS, MS (WDAM) -

The suspect in a Monday shooting at a Collins plant died from a self-inflicted gunshot.

Darrin Jones was found Tuesday after midnight about a mile north of the Collins city limits in a wooded area and a three-hour standoff ensued. He was then found dead, according to Collins police.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the Monday afternoon shooting at the Sanderson Farms plant in Collins where one person was injured. 

Collins police named Jones, 41, of Collins, as the suspect in the shooting. 

Police Chief Joey Ponder said one person was shot and transported to a local hospital with injuries, but he did not know the extent of them.

He said the shooting happened inside the facility around 4 p.m. The factory was closed down while the scene was made secure.

 Ponder said the shooting was not random and that the suspect knew the victim. 

Anyone with information regarding Jones is urged to call the Collins Police Dept. at 601-765-6541.
