That was the day doctors determined that he was stable enough to be transported to University Medical Center in Jackson for further treatment, an FMCH spokesperson said.

Deputies answered a call at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday regarding a shooting in the East Ridge Subdivision southwest of Centreville.

Another Centreville resident, 51-year-old Louis T. Allen, reportedly turned himself in to Centreville police on Sunday morning.
