MCCOMB, MS (WLBT) -

On Wednesday, McComb police arrested 35-year-old Russell E. Creason and charged him with manslaughter in the death of Shaun Wallace.

25-year-old Wallace was at Upper Deck Sports Bar when he was involved in a fight early Tuesday morning. 

When emergency crews got to the scene he was already dead.

According to witnesses at the bar, it started as a verbal fight between several people and soon escalated and got physical.

Employees and other customers tried to break up the fight. Once the fight was contained, a man, believed to be Creason, ran up and struck Wallace. 

Creason then fled the scene.

On Wednesday, Creason turned himself in to the McComb Police Department.

His bond has been set at $250,000 and his first court date will be June 1 for his arraignment. 

The McComb Police Department is still conducting an investigation and interviewing witnesses associated with the incident.
