VERONA, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Lee County say a suspect has been arrested in the weekend shooting that left a 41-year-old Verona man dead.

Sheriff Jim Johnson tells WTVA-TV (https://bit.ly/T3QufA ) that 33-year-old Roy Ray Merritt was booked Monday afternoon in the death of Rodney Lowery.

Lowery and another man were shot Saturday outside a house on City Point Road.

The second victim was treated and released from North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo.

It was not immediately clear whether Merritt has an attorney.
