"A white 4-door car with three men inside pulled up to another male and asked him about drugs, in the back area of the parking lot," said Hattiesburg Police Capt. Branden McLemore. "The male outside the car said he didn't use drugs, and the front passenger in the car pulled out a gun and shot his own window out."

McLemore added that the projectile from the round fired was recovered inside a hotel room.
