A man wanted in a Gulfport shooting turned himself in to authorities, Deputy Chief Chris Loposser said.

Ricky McDonald, 44, was wanted as a person of interest after Gulfport police responded to a call about a shooting and found a man with a gunshot wound, Chief Leonard Papania said Tuesday.

Papania said in a news release the shooting occurred Sunday evening in the 600 block of 3rd street.

The victim was taken to a local hospital and treated, Papania said.

Loposser said Wednesday that McDonald turned himself in to the Gulfport police station without incident.

McDonald was taken to the Harrison County jail on a charge of aggravated assault. His bond was set at $1 million.
