Arrest made in Mississippi shooting that killed 1, injured 6


OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) — Police in Mississippi say a suspect has been arrested in a shooting that left one person dead and six others injured at a restaurant during a Cinco de Mayo party. Ocean Springs Police Chief Mark Dunston said in a statement the suspect’s name was being withheld to avoid releasing details of the case that could “taint any forthcoming information.” Police said the suspect has been charged with murder. The arrest was announced Saturday evening, a day after a celebration erupted in gunfire at The Scratch Kitchen in downtown Ocean Springs. Police said that 19-year-old Chase Harmon of Pascagoula was fatally shot. Six others were wounded. Ocean Springs Police Capt. Ryan LeMaire said two of them remained hospitalized Saturday afternoon.
