COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) -- A man shot and killed in Columbus has been identified.

On Sunday, Coroner Greg Merchant says 26-year-old Tymechi-Ali Lachil Spann of Macon.

Authorities say a car accident Saturday morning led to the arrest of Stevie Moody in connection with a fatal shooting.

Lowndes County sheriff deputies responded to a three-car crash at the intersection of Greentree Drive and Lehmberg Road after 7 a.m.

When they arrived at the scene, Deputy Marc Miley says they found a driver suffering from gunshot wounds. 

He says the driver was rushed to the local hospital but died from his injuries.

During the crash investigation, Miley says they learned there was a domestic assault at the Green Tree Apartments in East Columbus.

They went to the building and found a woman in need of medical attention.  She told them her ex-boyfriend also needed medical attention. 

Miley says that's when they realized the crash and domestic assault were related. 

The woman was treated at the scene. 

The case remains under investigation.
