PICKENS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Authorities in Holmes County have made two arrests following a weekend fatal shooting.

Sheriff Willie March tell us it happened Sunday afternoon at the B.P. gas station on Highway 17 at Kangaroo crossing in Pickens.

The Holmes County Sheriff's Department has identified the murder victim as Katarah Allen, 21, from Pickens.

Investigators say Allen was gunned down as he stood outside his vehicle.

The two arrested and being charged with murder are James Carter, 25, from Vaughn, and Kimberly Evers, 22, from Pickens.

They were arrested along with six others Sunday at the La Quinta Inn in Jackson.

Sheriff March says the shooting stems from an ongoing feud, which could be connected to a December murder in Holmes County.
