Later in the morning, a man with gunshot wounds was found dead in a Pearl cemetery. The man has been identified as 33-year-old Jamal Holmes. Jackson Police said Holmes died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound not long after the incident.

The shootings are under investigation.

Earlier this morning, two of our employees were shot and killed in our parking lot. One was involved in a domestic violence situation, the other was acting as a Good Samaritan. The police are at the scene, and our campus is safe and accessible to all who need care. We are deeply saddened by this horrific tragedy.
