Two people are now in custody charged with first-degree murder in George County. According to Sheriff Keith Havard, the fatal shooting occurred around 8 p.m. Wednesday on TLC Lane.

John Landry, 35, of Lucedale and Johnny Kendrick, 37, of Leakesville are accused of killing Marcus Jordan, who died at the scene. 

Landry was arrested after he showed up for medical attention at a local hospital.
