Local News

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV)- A woman is taken to an area hospital after being shot twice in the leg during a drive-by in Jackson.

JPD says the woman was sitting outside of a house on Wacaster Street when shots were fired from a car.

Christopher Miller, the victim’s boyfriend, was with the victim at the time of the shooting and says he thinks the gun was aimed at him.

Miller said: “Me and my girlfriend were sitting outside in front of the house. A black Nissan drove up the street, like a dark grey Nissan. Then the car started coming back down the street… and as soon as my girl said ‘That car finna come back down the street’, they shot out of the car twice and sped off. The gun was aimed at me but when they hit the gas and they shot… it hit her.”

When asked what else he remembered from the shooting, Miller says the shots came out the back passenger window and he thinks he knows the shooter, but couldn’t see for sure.

Miller says the couple’s four-month-old baby was inside the house at the time of the shooting but was uninjured.

The woman is in stable condition and expected to be okay.
