LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - An Oak Grove woman has been charged with aggravated assault after allegedly shooting a man in what authorities are calling a domestic dispute.

Fifty five year old Robbie Renee McLaughlin was arrested around noon Wednesday by Lamar County Deputies in connection with a shooting earlier in the day at a residence on Highway 11 north of Purvis. Deputies were called to the scene after someone reported shots being fired. The home is also the business of Tommy Jenkins Towing and Recovery.

Lamar County authorities would not release the name of the victim. Authorities say a hand gun was found at the scene.

Although the victim was hit several times, the injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
