In a statement released around 6:50 p.m. Friday, VPD states that Akeyah Daniels, a 26-year-old female, shot twice at a male subject who was in the parking lot. No one was injured in the incident, but a Nissan Altima parked in the lot was struck by one bullet in the right front fender.

Daniels is being sought by Vicksburg Police for one count of drive-by shooting.

Original story:

An argument, apparently over a parking spot, turned into a shooting Friday in Vicksburg.

No one was injured, but police are continuing to investigate the incident. One vehicle shows evidence of being shot.
