A child called 911 late Sunday to report that his parents were arguing, Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel told The Hattiesburg American. The child met with deputies outside the home and said he thought he heard a gunshot while he was waiting for them to arrive.
Deputies searched the home and found Shauna Harris, 36, dead. Her husband, Percy Harris, 33, was arrested and charged. He’s being held without bail at a county jail.
It wasn’t immediately clear who has custody of the children. It also was unclear if Harris has a lawyer.
