LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A man is dead after an early morning shooting outside the Trotter Convention Center.
Columbus police were on the scene for about five hours. Coroner Greg Merchant says Cordell DeShaun Lewis, 27, was pronounced dead at Baptist Memorial Hospital Golden Triangle.
There has not been an arrest and there's no word on any suspects. An autopsy will likely be performed Monday because the state medical examiner's office is closed for the holiday.
This is the first civilian homicide of the year in the city limits of Columbus.
