JPD: 3 People Shot at Battlefield Park

Posted: Updated:

We are covering a developing story out of the city of Jackson this hour. According to officials with the Jackson Police Department, three people have been shot at a local park. We are told it happened at Battlefield Park, just before 3:30pm. Officer Colendula Green, with the Jackson Police Department, confirms to WJTV that three people were rushed to two different hospitals. Here is what we know right now. We are told one person was shot twice, another was shot once in the calf and the third person was slightly grazed by a bullet.  At this point, no suspects have been taken into custody by police. However, investigators did confirm to WJTV that a robbery led to those three people being shot. It is not clear if the robber is among those shot or if that person may have left the scene after the shootings. We will have much more on this story ahead on WJTV News Channel 12 @ 5:00 and WJTV News Channel 12 @ 6:00.
