VERONA, Miss. (WTVA) - Residents reached out to WTVA about a possible shooting in Verona on Wednesday morning.

WTVA has reached out to Verona Police Department to confirm this shooting, but they have not responded at this time. 

Residents say the shooting took place on Young Street. 

"I heard gun shots and 10 minutes later I saw the police," explained Stephanie Williams.

Williams lives nearby and says she fears for her family's life because shootings happen in the area way too often.

"My grand-kids wanted to go out and play but I said they can't go out," said Williams. "It's too dangerous out there."

"They say they are going to pass a gun law at the end of this month, that's too late," added Williams.

WTVA is waiting to hear back from officials to confirm the shooting.
