MONROE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A man is in the hospital and another is in custody after an overnight shooting in Nettleton.
Sheriff Cecil Cantrell confirmed to WTVA 9 News that the shooting stemmed from an argument between the alleged shooter and a group of people in a car.
The shooting happened on Highway 6 in Nettleton.
According to Cantrell, a 17-year-old juvenile shot at the vehicle, causing it to crash. Cantrell says the suspect's gun jammed, so he then went into a home and grabbed another gun to continue shooting at the vehicle.
