One person was injured in an altercation that involved shots fired in the 500 block of Klein Street Saturday morning as another person fled the scene.

Just after 9:30 a.m., Vicksburg police responded to the 500 block of Klein Street where they found a 20-year-old male suffering a non-life-threatening laceration to his head. Initial radio traffic indicated he was hit with an axe but Troy Kimble with the VPD identified the object as a “tool.”

Initial reports indicate that a 53-year-old male was also involved in the incident but had left the scene before officers arrived. He was believed to have been injured and self-transported to Merit Health River Region by private vehicle but, according to Kimble, he never showed up at the hospital. Kimble did say shots were fired but, at the time of this report, no one was believed to have been hit.
