Man Critically Injured in Marion County Shooting

A shooting in Western Marion County has left one man fighting for his life tonight.  

Marion County authorities say the shooting happened at about 1 p.m. on Saturday. 

Officials say an eyewitness told them that an unidentified man carrying a shotgun stormed into Kokomo Joe's Store in Kokomo and opened fire on a store clerk. 

Authorities say the clerk returned fire, striking the man. 

Officials say that unidentified man was treated at the scene and airlifted by Rescue 7 to Forrest General Hospital in critical condition. 

No arrests were made and the store clerk who was uninjured was taken in for questioning. 

Authorities say an altercation between the man and the store's owner ocurred several days ago. 

Also, News Seven has learned from a nearby resident who wishes to remain anonymous that the owner recently posted a sign outside his store listing customers who owe him money. 

The resident says it may have been a motive in the shooting. 

Officals from Walthall County, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and M.B.I.'s Violent Crime Scene Unit are assisting Marion County authorities in the investigation.
