DeKalb authorities have arrested a man in connection with a fatal shooting Wednesday. Sheriff Jimmy Harris says Christopher Landers of Mount Vernon shot and killed a man named Michael Jenkins during an argument. He resides in jail on a hundred thousand dollar bond. Sheriff Harris calls it a tragedy for both men’s families.
And DeKalb deputies are investigating the shooting of a landlord by his tenant in a mobile home park in Portersville north of Collinsville. The sheriff was unclear on whether charges will be filed and says the facts of the case may be presented to a grand jury to decide whether to go to trial.
