COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - A suspect in a deadly shooting at graduation party has turned himself in to Columbus police.

Interim Chief Tony Carleton tells WCBI-TV (https://bit.ly/1tGigfL) that Columbus resident Kale Scott turned himself in to police around 6 p.m. Sunday for questioning about his involvement in the shooting.

Investigators say 19-year-old Scott pulled out a gun and started shooting after an argument at a graduation party at the Columbus Fairgrounds around 12:05 a.m. Friday.

Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant says a bullet struck 21-year-old Devin Lamar Montgomery in the back. He died at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle. Another person was shot in the leg. Scott fled the scene.

Carleton says Scott will be held in the Lowndes County jail until he makes his first court appearance on Tuesday.
