GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A man faces life in prison after being found guilty of fatally shooting another man in Harrison County.

Local news organizations report that a jury found 23-year-old Henry Earl Harvey guilty of first-degree murder on Thursday.

Harvey had been accused of shooting 29-year-old Eddie Briggs at the Emerald Pines Apartments in January 2015 after fighting with him.

Authorities later found Briggs on a sidewalk near the apartment complex with gunshot wounds to his face and shoulder. He was later pronounced dead.

An officer who checked the area testified that he saw Harvey fleeing the scene. A K-9 team later tracked him down and arrested him.
