911 received 3 separate alerts at 6:49 p.m. alerting them of a shooting victim at the Fastway on Cherry at Clay. A 17-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the right leg was laying in the doorway of the Fastway when the first units arrived.

A large number of police and rescue units responded to the location. Several police units were seen leaving the scene and racing south on Cherry toward Carr Central Apartments. At least 6 units were at Carr Central looking for evidence of a shooting. Later radio traffic indicated the exact location of the shooting and area cameras were being sought.

The 17-year-old’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Several law enforcement units were noted at the hospital to quell angry family members of the injured young man.

Air Care was called to transport the injured to a Jackson area hospital.
