Second shooting at Alcorn & Athens this weekend



For the second time this weekend, shots were fired at the intersection of Athens and Alcorn Drive in Vicksburg Sunday.

Just before 12:30 p.m., E-911 received an onslaught of calls reporting multiple shots fired in the area.  Arriving officers found evidence of the event in the form of several shell casings and one vehicle riddled with bullet holes.
