By The Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) ' Authorities say a man has been arrested in the weekend shooting death of a Mississippi State University student in a dormitory.

University police chief Georgia Lindle said 21-year-old Mason Perry Jones of Jackson was arrested Monday on capital murder charges in connection with the death of 21-year-old John Sanderson.

The U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force arrested Jones on Sunday in Memphis, Tenn., on an unrelated, outstanding robbery warrant.

Sanderson, a resident of Madison, Miss., was shot late Saturday in a dormitory on campus. Authorities said the shooting appeared to have been isolated.

Lindley says the investigation is continuing.

It was unclear if Jones had a lawyer.
