Man shot and killed Saturday; Suspect in custody

Logan County Sheriff Steve Smith confirmed Sunday afternoon that a 40-year old Magazine man was shot and killed Saturday and that a 49-year old man is currently in custody in connection with the shooting.

The victim is Samuel “Bert” Gilbert III, Smith said. The man in custody is Jerry Morris, the sheriff added. He is being held at the Logan County Detention Center in Paris.

Smith said a 911 call was placed at approximately 7 p.m. Saturday night and when deputies arrived at an area he described as “east of Magazine,” the body was found inside a vehicle. Smith declined to release other details about the shooting.

Smith said the investigation is ongoing and “we are still piecing everything together.”
