ROSEDALE, Miss. (AP) - A Bolivar County man has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of murder in a fatal shooting in 2012.

The Bolivar Commercial reports (https://bit.ly/1GBxDPX ) that Ceasar “Cee Cee” Johnson was convicted this past week in Bolivar County Circuit Court.

Prosecutors say the body of 28-year-old Gregory Johnson Jr. was found in his car on Nov. 1, 2012, after driving into the J.Y. Trice Apartment Complex in Rosedale.

Authorities say they believe Johnson was trying to flee in the car after being shot during a confrontation. They say Johnson apparently put car in reverse and rolled into the building.

Johnson died of a gunshot wound to the head.
