Mississippi authorities say police in Columbus have shot and killed a 33-year-old man, and the case has been turned over to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

WCBI-TV reports that Rickey Javenta Ball, of Columbus, was shot during a traffic stop.

Police have not said what touched off the shooting Friday night.

WTVA-TV reports  that Ball was hit in an arm and his buttocks, and a bullet apparently hit an artery.

Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant released his identity Saturday.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation investigates police shootings. Spokesman Warren Strain did not immediately respond to a call for comment Sunday.

According to WTVA, Ball had been given a ride by a woman who said she did not know him.
