Man wanted in fatal Jackson County shooting turns himself in

Brown Christopher

The man wanted in last weekend’s fatal shooting in Jackson County is behind bars after turning himself in late Friday afternoon.

Christopher Jerome Brown of Gulfport is charged with murder in the death of Nicholas Darnell Pittman.

Deputies found 36-year old Pittman deceased at a home on Theriot Avenue near Latimer Saturday, July 24.  Sheriff Mike Ezell says 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 is in the Jackson County Adult Detention Center  under a $500,000 bond set Monday morning.
