Pascagoula police have found the Moss Point man wanted in connection to a Friday shooting.

Police were looking for Brandon Taiwan Williams after a shooting that happened around 3:45 p.m. Friday on Whitmore Street. One male victim was taken to Singing River Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Capt. Doug Adams said police were told Saturday that Williams was in custody in the Rankin County jail after being taken into custody by the Florence Police Department on a traffic stop in the early morning.

Adams said Pascagoula police believe the shooting was related to Williams' prior arrest in March.

Williams is out on a $75,000 bond and is awaiting trial in Jackson County Circuit Court.
