BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

One person is in custody, and another is recovering following a shooting at a Biloxi grocery store.

According to the Biloxi Police Department, one person was shot at the Winn-Dixie on Pass Road near Popp's Ferry sometime Saturday night. Police arrested 23-year-old Kelvin Maron, Lewis Jr. of Biloxi, in connection to the shooting.

The victim -- a store employee -- was taken to Merit Health, where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Lewis was located and arrested shortly after the shooting without incident. He is being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center on a $250,000 bond.

Winn-Dixie's corporate headquarters issued a statement Saturday morning saying they would do everything they could to help authorities.

"We are focused on doing everything we can to support our team and our thoughts and prayers are with those directly involved and injured," said Drew Elkins, the store's regional vice president. "We are also working closely with the sheriff and police departments as they complete their investigation and we thank them for their courage and swift response.” 

Maron has been charged with aggravated assault.
