LORMAN, Miss. (AP) - Claiborne County Sheriff Marvin Lucas says an arrest has been made in the fatal shooting of a former Jackson State University football player during an altercation near Alcorn State University.

Lucas tells WLBT-TV in Jackson (https://bit.ly/1HSh6Ix) that 21-year-old Kennen McCallister is charged with aggravated assault. Lucas says more charges are possible.

At 2 a.m. Sunday, Lucas says 23yearold Travis Woods was killed during a fight outside of Patton’s Store after a party at a nearby club. Lucas says deputies are investigating what started the fight.

He says McCallister was a security guard at the club, came outside and started firing shots. One of the bullets hit Woods, who died at a local hospital.

Two others were shot in the fight. One was treated and released. Lucas says the other is in critical but stable condition.
