    His accused killer, Bryant Ward, 24, is in the Desoto County Jail waiting to be extradited to Shelby County.

    A spokesperson with the SCSO said once Ward was in Shelby County there will be more information on Ward's upcoming court dates.

    Neighbors who live off Lineann Cove where the shooting happened on Wednesday are still shaken.

    William Lee said one of the bullets hit his car.

    "If the car hadn't been in the way the bullet could've gone through the front window and hit me too," said Lee.
