MOSS POINT, Miss. (WLOX) - After nearly four months on the run, a suspect has been arrested in the deadly New Year’s Eve shooting that took the life of a 22-year-old man in Moss Point.

Nathan Dubose was arrested in Panama City, Fla. over the weekend. According to authorities, he was attempting to refill his drink at a fast food restaurant without paying when an officer pulled into the parking lot.

The employees at the restaurant told the officer that Dubose had not paid for his drink. After speaking with the suspect, the officer learned that Dubose was wanted for murder in Moss Point.

He was arrested in Florida, where he is currently being held pending extradition back to Mississippi.

Dubose is accused of firing multiple shots at a vehicle on Dec. 31, 2020, killing 22-year-old Javantavous Davison and leaving another passenger in the vehicle injured. According to police, two men wearing all black approached the Honda Civic that Davison and the passenger were in near the intersection of Mill Avenue.

In April, Dubose was added to Mississippi’s Most Wanted list with warrants charging him with first-degree murder and aggravated assault.
