Jackson County investigators search for shooting suspect

Jackson County Sheriff’s investigators are searching for a suspect in connection with a domestic-related fatal shooting.

The shooting occurred late Saturday afternoon, according to Sheriff Mike Ezell.

Investigators are searching for Christopher Jerome Brown, 30, in connection with the shooting death of Nicholas Darnell Pittman. Deputies found the 36-year-old dead at a home on Theriot Avenue in the Latimer community.

According to the investigation, Ezell said, Pittman went to the home to pick up his son, who lives there with his mother and Brown.

The two men argued and Brown allegedly shot Pittman.  Brown was gone before deputies got to the house. They searched the area on foot using a K-9.  A murder warrant was issued for Brown.
