MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Marion County authorities are investigating an afternoon shooting that injured one person in the Improve community. 

According to Marion County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Jamie Singley, the shooting happened just after 3 p.m. at J&K One Stop off Hwy 44. 

"We responded to a report of a shooting, and shorty after we revived a call that there was a person suffering from a gunshot wound at a local hospital," Singley said. "We aren't sure if that is the victim or the suspect at this time, it's still early in the investigation, but it does appear it is domestic related." 

Singley added that the person is stable.
