CHARLESTON, Miss. (WTVA) - The investigation is ongoing into a fatal shooting in Tallahatchie County.

Five people were shot Saturday morning on Leverette Lane, which is south of Charleston.

Of the five people, one person died.

The sheriff said two of the remaining four shooting victims remain hospitalized at a Memphis hospital.

The others were released from medical care.
