Shooting on Locust Street in Vicksburg



A shooting has occurred in the 400 block of Locust Street in Vicksburg.

Just after 7 p.m. Saturday, Vicksburg police along with Vicksburg EMS/Fire responded to Locust Street near the intersection of Mundy Street for a reported shooting.

Early information gleaned from witnesses near the scene indicates there were two shooters exchanging gunfire. Both were apparently shot, but neither victim has life-threatening injuries. Both are apparently juveniles, which makes it highly unlikely their names will be released by police.

Initial reports say that both victims have been transported to Merit Health River Region. Their conditions are not known.

The Vicksburg Daily News will provide additional information as we know it.
