PEMISCOT COUNTY--Residents of Pemiscot County near Cooter are still in shock over a shooting that left two men dead.
Monday, police charged Ronald Harvey Howell, Jr., 27, with two counts of murder in the first degree. Police say Howell's father Ronald Howell, Sr. was also present at the crime, but has not been charged.
"The information that we have is that they were visiting and one of them obtained a weapon and began shooting," said Sheriff Greenwell.
Neighbors say the Chamness brothers kept to themselves, but violence like this does make folks worry.
Bobby Dean Shelton lives just down the road from the trailer where the men were shot and admits, it makes him nervous.
"This makes everthing get jittery, you don't know what to expect," said Shelton.
While neighbors aren't scared, they say events like this don't usually happen around here.
