BILOXI, Miss. — Biloxi police say one man has been arrested in a fatal shooting at the Southern View Apartments.

Lt. Christopher De Back tells local news outlets officers found a man with a gunshot wound Saturday morning. He was taken by ambulance to Merit Health Biloxi.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said 41-year-Michael Woods died of a gunshot wound to the chest at 7:20 a.m.

De Back said police have taken 29-year-old Orlando Newell into custody in Woods’ shooting death.

De Back said the two were acquaintances, and that Newell had a prior dispute with Woods.

Newell is being held at the Harrison County jail with no bond.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for him.
