Authorities have provided details about the shooting of six people in the small town of Arkabutla, Mississippi, on Friday.
Tate County sheriff Brad Lance told the New York Times the shooting began around 11am, when suspect Richard Dale Crum killed an apparent stranger at a convenience store.
From there, the alleged gunman drove to the home of his ex-wife and shot her, as well as struck a man who was in the home at the time.
