Five to be charged with capital murder in Mantachie shooting


Daily Journal

BRUCE - Two people are being questioned in connection with an early morning shooting just off the square in Bruce.

“We have two persons of interest at the sheriff’s office now being questioned,” Calhoun County Sheriff Greg Pollan said early Thursday afternoon. “We expect charges to come soon.”

At least one of the people being questioned worked with the victim, James Pratt, 31, of Weir, at the Haworth seating plant in Bruce.

An officer on patrol spotted a car in the parking lot of a bait shop around 12:30 a.m. Friday. When the officer looked inside the car, he saw a body that had been shot multiple times.

Pratt was pronounced dead at the scene.

More details are expected to be released later.
