OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) — Police in the Mississippi suburbs of Memphis, Tennessee, are searching for a man accused of shooting and killing another man.

Olive Branch police tell news outlets they're looking for 21-year-old Tyease Kiosh Lofton of Southaven. They think he shot Bryan Harris of Horn Lake during a fight Friday night with several people in a parking lot outside a banquet hall.

Harris was pronounced dead after he arrived at a hospital.

Gamio Oba, who works nearby, tells WREG-TV that he walked outside and saw people running away and screaming.

Lofton is described by police as an African American male, 5-foot, 8-inches tall and 132 pounds, with large tattoos on his neck.
