MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - A Brookhaven man has been indicted for allegedly shooting a man and kidnapping his female companion in rural Pike County last August.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/LxtulD ) that Pike County Circuit Court records show 45-year-old Cammie Porter has been indicted for attempted murder, armed robbery, sexual battery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

No court date has been set.

Authorities say Porter allegedly gave Jamari Armstrong and his companion a ride in McComb then stopped near the Bogue Chitto River bridge east of Summit.

The indictment alleges Porter shot Armstrong and stole his iPhone and wallet.

Porter then allegedly drove away with the woman, who escaped by jumping from the moving car and running to a nearby home for help, according to the Pike County Sheriff’s Department.
