UPDATE: Jackson Police said three people have been detained for questioning in connection with an early morning carjacking and shooting.

They told WJTV that they believe whoever was involved in the carjacking on Congress Street near Davis Magnet School, could be connected to a carjacking that happened last night.

JPD Commander Tyree Jones said that a red Nissan Altima was carjacked from a North Jackson apartment complex Thursday night. There were two male suspects in this case.

Jones said a little after 5:20 a.m. Friday, a woman was carjacked on Congress Street and shot in the hand. Police said the suspects in that case left the scene in the woman's black Infinity and in a red Nissan. They believe it was the same Nissan that was stolen last night.

Jones said their investigation led them to Louisiana Avenue where they recovered the two vehicles.
