HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Two men were arrested and charged after a reported drive-by shooting Sunday in Hattiesburg.

Hattiesburg Police Department spokesman Ryan Moore said officers responded to the shooting on West 5th Street around noon.

The woman who reported the shooting told responding officers something hit her house. Officers searched the outside of the home and found a hole in a front window that appeared to be from a bullet, Moore said.

According to witness statements given to police, the home was not targeted during the shooting, but was hit by a shot that was fired in the roadway at Main Street and 5th Street. Witnesses also described a vehicle believed to be involved in the shooting.

Moore said Ricardo Hollingsworth, 44, was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Later in the day, officers found the vehicle witnesses described at a home on Diamond Street. That’s where Terrence Haynes, 21, was taken into custody.

Haynes is charged with drive-by shooting and possession of a stolen weapon.

Moore said the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please call the police department or Crime Stoppers at 601-582-7867.
