A call was dispatched at 7 a.m. to the Riverwalk Casino Hotel in reference to a shooting. Numerous units with the Vicksburg Police Department, including Deputy Chief Troy Kimble, and first responders arrived to find a woman shot several times in the elevator of the parking garage.

Reports state Lee-Hubbard was shot by her husband, Cedrick L. Hubbard, Jr. Hubbard allegedly waited at the casino for his wife to get off from her work shift. From there, the two were said to have been involved in a domestic dispute which led to Hubbard shooting her in the back five times as she entered the elevator.
