It happened around 12:30 a.m. inside the Golden Nugget Casino. Police said they received a number of 911 calls about a man shooting inside the casino.

Officers arrested Jereme Lamond Jones, 30, of Mobile, Alabama, on a charge of first-degree murder after he allegedly shot a man multiple times on the gaming floor, police said. No other injuries were reported.

The victim, a 41-year-old man from Gulfport, Mississippi, was pronounced dead at the scene just before 1 a.m. His name has not been released yet.

Investigators said the victim and Jones argued outside the casino and then ran into the building. The victim was shot at close range, police said. It’s unclear if the men knew each other.

Biloxi police and officers from surrounding jurisdictions responded and arrested Jones near the Biloxi Bay Bridge, armed with a pistol, police said.

Jones is being held at the Harrison County Jail. Bond was set at $1 million. It was unknown if he’s represented by an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the Biloxi Police Department. Tips can also be submitted via email to ciu@biloxi.ms.us or to Mississippi Crime Stoppers.
