Shooting is Jeff Davis' first murder of '07

One man is dead and his alleged killer is behind bars following a shooting in Jeff Davis County on Wednesday morning.

Murder has become an all-too-familiar occurrence in Jeff Davis County, and Wednesday's shooting at an apartment complex is opening some old wounds.

Christopher Berry, 30, is behind bars facing murder charges after authorities say he shot and killed 21-year-old Stacy Hall.

The shooting happened at about 10 a.m. In the parking lot at Palmetto Estates off Highway 42. Authorities say Hall was shot multiple times from a .38-special revolver.

The murder is the first in the county this year and comes nearly one week to the day after last year's first murder.

Residents told 7 ON YOUR SIDE the two men had issues with each other. But authorities did not give a motive for the murder.
