Coast cops probe shootings, fatal crash

One person is dead and three others are in critical condition following a fatal accident and shooting on the Gulf Coast. It happened last night on Highway 90, near the Southern Miss coast campus.

Gulfport and Long Beach officers responded to the wreck, where they say the car ran into a tree.

Investigators believe the crash may be tied to reports of shootings in Long Beach and Gulfport.

Gulfport Police Chief Alan Weatherford says shortly before the accident, there were reports of three shots fired at Beach Avenue and 11th Street, then several cars were seen speeding away from the scene. There were also reports of gunshots in Long Beach.

Both Gulfport and Long Beach are working together on this investigation.

No names have  been released.
