Police said a man wanted on a first degree murder warrant after a shooting in Byhalia was detained by U.S. marshals in Olive Branch Monday night.
A first degree murder warrant was issued for Miles LaCameron Cunnigham, 27. Cunningham was wanted for the death of Lazarus Lawson.
Byhalia Police Chief Ben Moore said the shooting took place when Cunningham discovered that his child’s mother had a new boyfriend. He reportedly kicked the apartment door where the woman and Lawson were.
An altercation ensued until several shots were fired, police say. One of the shots hit Lawson in the back. The child was not home at the time of the shooting.
Lawson was flown to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where he died of his injuries, the Marshall County coroner told WREG News.
