"My prayers go out with the family of the deceased individual," Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker said.

Authorities confirmed a person walked up to Brown, shot him in the chest and then surrendered. The shooter is in custody but hasn't been identified.

Sources told The Clarion-Ledger the shooter's mother was set to testify against Brown.

The district attorney said Brown was expected to reject a plea offer in court.
