IUKA, Miss. (WTVA) - Tishomingo County Sheriff John Daugherty confirmed a shooting took place Tuesday evening.

Iuka Police Chief Randy Stringer says officers responded to a residence in Iuka for a family domestic argument near noon. He says a father and his 18-year-old son were arguing and the son left, but returned later with more family members. 

Stringer says a fight broke out, which resulted in at least one person being shot. It's unclear who was shot at this time, as well as who fired the shot. The injured person was flown out for medical treatment.

He says officers are still conducting interviews in the case.

A neighbor says she heard someone saying, "I'm going to kill you." She says she heard at least five shots.

The unnamed 18-year-old son was arrested and charged with felony malicious mischief.
