GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — A man who was arrested during a shooting investigation has been indicted on drug trafficking and firearm charges.
The Sun Herald reports 23-year-old Jeremy Devon King was indicted Tuesday on several offenses that include conspiracy, possession of a firearm and possession with intent to distribute meth.
Gulfport police pulled over King and a passenger on June 17 because King's car matched the description of a shooting suspect's vehicle. Officers later found a plastic bag containing 108.6 grams of meth in the glove box.
According to an affidavit, King admitted during questioning that he was at the shooting, but says he did not fire any shots. He also admitted to distributing crystal meth.
King will be arraigned in U.S. District Court on July 20. It's unclear if King has a lawyer.
