HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The investigation into a double-shooting that happened Wednesday afternoon in the Hub City is still ongoing.

Police responded to a report of shots fired at 113 Mable Street around 4:30 p.m. according to a press release from the Hattiesburg Police Department.

According to Hattiesburg Police Capt. Branden McLemore, there was an altercation between two people and it resulted in multiple shots being fired.

“It was apparently an armed robbery, and it turned into a physical altercation between two people and both individuals were shot,” said McLemore.

Both individuals were transported from the scene by ambulance according to Hattiesburg Police Department PIO Latosha Myers Mitchell.
