Jefferson Davis County authorities continue investigating Tuesday's shooting that left 26-year-old Taurus Lockhart of Magee dead.
Officials say an incident in Simpson County may have led to the shooting.
Investigators say Lockhart was the passenger in a car driven by Quentin Baggett of Mount Olive. Baggett told authorities that after being flashed by another vehicle he pulled over. That's when an unidentified gunman approached, firing into the car.
Last year, Quentin Baggett was acquitted on two counts of aggravated assault in a double shooting that injured two men.
