Shots fired into Jackson home on Lawrence Road


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – A home on Lawrence Road in Jackson was shot into multiple times Tuesday evening.

Homeowner Sherrod Hogan said the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute involving his niece and another woman. Neighbors said after the home was shot into, the suspect sped off firing multiple shots in the air. 

On Monday night, another domestic dispute shooting took place on Meadowmont Drive in Jackson. According to Jackson police, a man shot at his ex-girlfriend’s car when she arrived at home. Police said two children were injured, but the woman was not hurt. 

Hogan was born and raised in Jackson. He said it’s not a place to raise a child, despite his love for his home, because of the division in the city.  Hogan believes the best way to attack the division is through educating the youth. 

“It’s what you embed in them. If you aren’t embedding change in them, it’s going to stay the same,” said Hogan.

At this time, no arrests have been made for either shooting.
