BOONEVILLE – One man was shot and killed in the Wheeler community near Booneville on Friday night.
Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar said the man suspected in the shooting turned himself in Saturday morning just before 7 a.m. Daniel Wayne Green was charged Saturday with manslaughter, culpable negligence.
Authorities confirmed the man killed is 21-year-old Dillon James Radke.
Tolar said a call came into 911 at 10:25 p.m. Friday as an open line call, meaning no one was on the phone to report what happened. Police were dispatched to 14 County Road 5121 where they reported finding a young white male with a single gunshot wound to the chest.
Tolar said the man died of his wounds on the scene.
The suspect reportedly fled on food and deputies searched the area through the night.
“We eventually came into contact with his mother who brought him to the sheriff’s office,” Tolar said. “We have interviewed several witnesses.”
The body of the deceased man was taken to Jackson for an autopsy.
