The suspect accused in the shooting death of a Hopkinsville man Sunday morning in Oak Grove has been extradited from Clarksville to the Christian County Jail.
A warrant for murder charges was served on 22-year old Hersey Mitchell of Persimmon Court, Clarksville yesterday. Mitchell had been in the Montgomery County Jail since Sunday after he allegedly shot and killed 23-year old Shannon Fairley of Hopkinsville at the Mapco convenience store near the Oak Grove Wal-Mart.
A pursuit following the shooting extended into Tennessee and the Clarksville Police Department and Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office assisted in Mitchell’s eventual arrest.
Mitchell is in the Christian County Jail on one million dollars bond. Arraignment is scheduled for today.
