VERONA, Miss. (WTVA) - Many unanswered questions remain in Verona after residents say a shooting took place Wednesday morning.
However, Verona police have yet to confirm it and are not releasing information about any such incident.
WTVA reached out to Verona Police Chief J.B. Long throughout Thursday morning and he stated he has been advised to not comment. The same goes for Verona Mayor Bobby Williams.
But residents say they heard gun shots and saw police driving up and down Young Road Wednesday morning.
Quenshana Johnson and her baby, along with other residents, say they were woke by about 15 gun shots.
She says an officer asked her if she saw anyone run behind her house on Anthony Street.
"I'm worried about my mom. She just moved here not too long ago," said T.J. Hollimon. "And I hope they keep this environment safe and all the gun violence out."
Area parents say they are also terrified to let their children play outside.
