The suspect Moss Point police called "armed and dangerous" is in custody, according to Chief Brandon Ashley.
Ashley said Saturday morning David Oneal Jones turned himself in around 7:30 p.m. Friday to Moss Point police.
Police responded to a possible shooting in the 4000 block of Tanner Street on Wednesday afternoon and found a man who had been shot once in a leg, Ashley said.
The victim identified the alleged shooter as David Oneal Jones, 30, Ashley said.
Police later found the rifle, which had been reported stolen from a Moss Point resident in 2017, at a home on Lilly Circle.
The victim had surgery and "is listed in guarded condition at this time," he said.
