Man walks to police station, confesses to killing woman

GLOSTER, MISS (WAFB) - Police say a man turned himself in to police immediately after he shot and killed a woman early this morning at a home located in Gloster, Mississippi.

"He walked from his home, to the police station, and confessed to the crime," Chief Dandridge Brooks, Gloster Police Department, said. "It seems to be a domestic incident. It happened at about 7:30 this morning."

Police have not yet released the name of the suspect or the victim. They did confirm the victim is a 36-year-old woman.

"The case is still under investigation, "Chief Brooks said. "We're being assisted by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation."

Homicides are not common to the sleepy town of Gloster. Chief Brooks estimates that it's been at least one year since the last case they investigated.
