The man wanted in connection with a Wednesday night shooting in Sikeston is now in police custody.

Raymond "Ray" Mitchell, 23, of Sikeston, turned himself in Thursday, said Lt. Jim McMillen, criminal investigator and public information officer for the Sikeston Dept. of Public Safety.

Mitchell was charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action.

Sikeston DPS officers responded to a 911 call and found the victim, Eric Tucker, laying behind a telephone pole near the coroner of Delmar and Dorothy Streets around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Tucker was in critical condition Friday, according to Sikeston DPS.

McMillen did not say what led to the shooting.
