A Pascagoula native and student at Blue Mountain College was killed Thursday night when he was struck by a vehicle in New Albany, Mississippi.
New Albany Police Chief Chris Robertson says reports came in shortly before 10 p.m. that a pedestrian had been truck by a vehicle on West Bankhead Street.
Officers found the body of a white male, later identified as 21-year-old Christopher ‘Boomer’ Maurin of Pascagoula.
