Two people were shot in what Forrest County Sheriff's Department investigators are calling a domestic related altercation that occurred at the 42 Club in Forrest County Saturday night.

According to investigator Nick Calico, around 11:45 Saturday night, deputies responded to the club in the 1800 block of Highway 42 East to a report of a shooting.

“When deputies arrived several bar patrons had detained the shooter inside the bar,” said Calico.

The alleged shooter, William Overstreet, 66, of Petal was handed over to deputies and then booked into the Forrest County Jail and charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

Overstreet was given a $30,000 bond, $15,000 on each count of aggravated assault.

Calico stated that according to witnesses inside the club, the alleged shooting stemmed from a verbal altercation between William, his soon to be ex-wife, and her boyfriend.

“As the verbal altercation turned physical, that's when the shooting occurred,” said Calico.

The two victims were transported to a local hospital by ambulance and treated for their injures. Neither of the victims injures were life threatening according to Calico.

"No one else inside the bar was injured during the shooting, it was just that isolated incident," said Calico.

Calico added that the weapon was recovered at the scene and taken into evidence. .

    Though she stands at just 4-foot-10, Aimee Durn is a force for the Jones County Junior College women's soccer club. The short freshman from England is a big reason the Lady Bobcats are 5-0-1. "They say big things come in small packages and that's very true for Aimee," said tenth-year JCJC women's soccer coach Dolores Deasley.
