MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Names have been released of the people involved in a Wednesday night shooting and stabbing that  injured two in the Goss community, according to Marion County authorities. 

Marion County deputies responded to 395 Tolar Road around 5:30 p.m. and found two men, one suffering from a gunshot wound and the other a stab wound. 

According to the Marion County Sheriff's Department, Ryan Broom had a stab wound to the left arm and James Dustin Brewer was found with a gunshot wound to the back.

"The victim that was shot was suffering from a gunshot wound to his back, and the other had a stab wound on his left arm," Marion County Chief Investigator Jamie Singley said. 

Singley added that the victim suffering from the gunshot wound was transported to Forrest General Hospital by air ambulance, Rescue 9.

The stabbing victim was taken to Marion General by another person in a personal vehicle, according to investigators.

"In this incident the two people injured are believed to be the only two people involved," Singley said. "It's an isolated incident but at this time neither is being charged until we piece together what actually occurred."

Singley added that investigators are not sure at this time of the two men actually knew one another or what led to the incident.

If you have any information regarding the incident, contact the Marion County Sheriff's Department.
