MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Investigators from Montgomery County say the man responsible for killing three people and injuring one overnight, turned himself in shortly after the shooting rampage. They say the murders happened shortly after 2 am.

The victims have been identified as 32-year-old Kenneth Cornelius Loggins, killed in his home just outside of Winona. Two more victims, a mother and daughter, 59-year-old Carolyn Ann Sanders, and 32-year-old Marquita Vaughns Hill, found shot in a home on Pecan drive in Kilmichael about 10 miles away. 

"That's just terrible," said a neighbor, Charlene Ervin. "I pray for them and ask the Lord just give us strength to accept and endure this cause that's a horrible thing. Can you imagine a mother and daughter, it's just sad. I'm even wondering where I'm going to go from here."

Ervin says Sanders' husband was away in Germany on business when he got the call his daughter and wife had been killed.

A fourth victim Marcus Brown was shot then airlifted to University Medical Center where he's receiving treatment.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigations is assisting the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department with the case.

40-year-old Odell Hallmon, the father of Marquita Hill's 12-year-old son, was arrested.

He is facing three counts of first degree murder, one count of aggravated assault and another count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.  

Sheriff Bubba Nix says he has a checkered past.  

"He's been in and out of prison," said Sheriff Nix. "I've been eight years in office;  Drugs, He's on probation. It's been a problem with drugs with him."

Sheriff Nix said Hallmon and Hill's 12-year-old son was in the home with his mother and grandmother when the shooting happened, but somehow escaped unharmed.
