GRENADA, Miss. (AP) - A north Mississippi man is dead after he was shot in the head multiple times.

Grenada County Sheriff’s Investigator Josh Dale tells WTVA-TV that deputies were called Saturday to a home north of Grenada.

There, they found 46-year-old Jeff Counts dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

Deputies arrested 18-year-old Gage Atkinson at the scene and charged him murder.

Dale says Counts, Atkinson and two others were shooting at targets in the home’s backyard. He calls Counts’ death an domestic related situation.

It’s unclear if Atkinson has seen a judge or has a lawyer.

Counts’ body will be sent to the state Crime Lab in Pearl on Monday for an autopsy.
