Sunday Morning U.S. Marshals arrested Walker at an apartment in Hickory Hill, but Southaven Police said the investigation is “ongoing.” In fact Monday police were back in the neighborhood off stateline road, reviewing home security camera video.

It is unknown exactly what the video shows, but WREG-TV was told at least one bullet pierced the wall of a house two doors down from the shooting scene, narrowly missing a youngster inside.

While it is still not clear what started the argument, people who live on Vaught Circle were shocked at how quickly a night devoted to fun, turned into tragedy.
