JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Councilman Brian Grizzell is calling on state legislature for help after two stray bullets hit the homes of two senior neighbors.

Grizzell said one woman was almost shot by a stray bullet on Friday, December 31 when she was leaving a bathroom in her home. Another woman told him a bullet landed on her front door on Saturday, January 1.

He reminds neighbors that shooting bullets in the city carries misdemeanors and life-threatening consequences.

“No one deserves to live like this. No one deserves to sit in their own home and be afraid of a bullet coming in and striking them, or killing them. No one,” said Grizzell.

He continued that he hopes state legislature will grant the city crime-stopping technologies and that the Council will push for stiffer shooting consequences.
