The victim of Sunday morning’s shooting at South and First North streets is a 21-year-old man, according to the Vicksburg Police Department. It is one of the few new details about the Dec. 22 shooting police provided.

The unidentified victim was transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson for treatment, and his condition is unknown.

Witnesses on the scene said the man was shot multiple times in an eight-to-nine-shot flurry of gunfire at what locals call the Rodney Store. The business may also be known as the South Street Shopette, according to police.

No suspects have been apprehended in the shooting, and the investigation continues.
