ST. MARTIN, Miss. (AP) - Following a shooting of a man in St. Martin authorities say they’ve arrested the victim’s sister and another man.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2olG8bC ) 21-year-old Tony Lamont Buchanan and a 17-year-old turned themselves in Tuesday and were charged with aggravated assault of 18-year-old Raheem Johnson.

Johnson was shot in the groin and brought to the hospital. Authorities say Johnson and the juvenile are siblings.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell says Buchanan shot Johnson on Friday at his home. Johnson told investigators his sister was driving a car, when Buchanan rolled down the passenger window and shot Johnson.

Ezell says the men had argued over an allegation that Buchanan had shut a car door on the leg of the Johnson’s 12-year-old nephew.

It’s unclear if either Buchanan or the juvenile has an attorney.
