Jackson police shed light on shooting at the state fair

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

New details are emerging about a shooting at the Mississippi State Fair this weekend.

Jackson police now say the gunfire involved 25 girls on the inside the fairgrounds, early Saturday morning.

A male was shot and ran outside the gates and later refused to be taken to the hospital by AMR.

JPD says the Hinds County Sheriff's Department would have to provide details about the shooting because they have jurisdiction on the inside gates of the fairgrounds.

This information confirms reports from WLBT viewers and an AMR spokesman.

The sheriff's department did not return a call Sunday for comment.

Saturday, a spokesperson told WLBT the agency did not respond to and are not investigating a shooting at the fairgrounds.
