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.
