Published

on

Update 8:50:

The stabbing is not related to the shooting. It apparently occurred in the city of Vicksburg.

Original story:

Another shooting occurred Tuesday around 8 p.m. at the Azalea Trace Apartments on Fisher Ferry Road in Warren County.

The information we have is that a 17-year-old male has been shot once in the ribs and has been transported to Merit Health River Region. Another male has been hospitalized with multiple lacerations in what appears to be the same incident. Apparently, the second man was not transported to the hospital by ambulance.

The incident happened in the same building as the shooting Saturday. It’s not known if the two incidents are connected.

This is a breaking story. The Vicksburg Daily News will provide more details as we get them.
