ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - Police are currently investigating a shooting in Aberdeen.

It happened on Short Street early Monday evening.

Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell says one person has died. Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley identifies the victim as 16-year-old Rondarrian Ward of Tupelo.

Gurley says it may be several days waiting for an autopsy due to weather and the shortage of staff at the State Medical Examiner's Office.
