HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Bond has been set for the ten people charged in "multiple incidents" at a Hattiesburg apartment complex last week, including a deadly shooting.

Hattiesburg police responded to the shooting at Pineview Apartments off Country Club Road just before 3 p.m. Thursday. When police arrived, they found 20-year-old Mark Gould dead in the courtyard. Police believe Gould was running from the scene after a fight when he was shot.

HPD issued a warrant for the arrest of Jonathon Darnell Jones early Friday morning. Jones turned himself in to authorities that evening. He is charged with murder.

Nine others were charged in connection to the  "multiple incidents" over two days at the apartment complex. HPD spokesman Ryan Moore confirmed officers responded to an assault at the complex Thursday morning around 8 a.m., where a victim was hit in the head with an object. Moore said the department would not release which arrests, if any, where involved in that incident.

The full list of suspects and charges are as follows, according to Hattiesburg Police.  Bond amounts were gathered from the Forrest County Jail:
