UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL

SAVANNAH, Ga., — The reigning Miss Savannah surrendered to law enforcement officials yesterday in the shooting death of her boyfriend.

Sharron Nicole Redmond, 21, turned herself in at the Chatham County Detention Center yesterday morning, a local television station reported. Police said in addition to murder, Miss Redmond would probably face weapons charges.

Kevin Shorter, 25, died Friday at Memorial Health University Hospital, where he had been in critical condition since being shot in the stomach Tuesday night, the TV station said.

Police said the two were arguing outside the home of Mr. Shorter’s other girlfriend when the shooting occurred.

Miss Redmond had been charged with aggravated assault and was out on bond when Mr. Shorter died. Her attorney said the shooting was in self-defense and details would come out in court.

A preliminary hearing in the case was set for Monday.

Miss Georgia Pageant officials said they had not decided what to do about Miss Redmond’s crown.
