"I mean we are a family friendly restaurant, been in Hattiesburg for 13 years and never expected anything like this," said Sevell.

Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler said, "The victim does not appear to have been at the restaurant at anytime nor connected to it either."

HPD was on scene of a shooting at Mugshots restaurant just after 3 p.m.

Police responded to the shooting scene in the parking lot of the restaurant a 204 North 40th Avenue.

People who lived in the apartment complex across the street like Alexis Fizer said this activity is unusual in the neighborhood.

"I stay not even 4.3 feet away and it was kind of too much," said Fizer. "I have small children and I take care of my uncle who is also disabled so it was very shocking to me."

One person was taken from the scene to Forrest General Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound.

At this time, no suspect is in custody.
