JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi sheriff says a man was beaten and shot two weeks after reporting a cross burning in his yard.

Smith County Sheriff Charlie Crumpton says deputies were called to a disturbance Friday night outside Raleigh. Craig Wilson had been shot in the stomach and was taken to University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. He was in fair condition Tuesday.

Crumpton says 37-year-old Jeff Daniels was arrested Friday and booked with aggravated assault. He was released Monday on $20,000 bond.

Wilson and Daniels are white. The sheriff says the victim is the boyfriend of Daniels’ mother.

Crumpton says investigators are also trying to determine whether Friday’s attack was prompted by people upset that Wilson was visited by his mixed-race grandchildren.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Daniels has an attorney.
