VERONA, Miss. (WTVA) -- Interim police Chief Johnny Patterson said officers got multiple calls about shootings within three days.
Residents in Verona are asking for the violence to stop.
"This didn't just start happening this has been going on. This change should have happened already. The same thing over, and over, and over again," said resident Bill Huddleston.
Three calls came in concerning gunshots from Thursday, August 19 to Sunday, August 25.
The chief said two turned out to be drive-by shootings.
In one of the shootings, the victim was wounded in the leg.
Officers have not made any arrests, but they think they have figured out who the shooters are.
Even with that, not everyone in the city believes enough is being done to stop the violence.
"I think that we do have a great chief, but I think that we need better officers to listen to the citizens and try to pay attention to what the community is telling them and just let them do their job," said Huddleston.
Chief Patterson says he expects officers to make arrests soon in these shootings.
He's asking anyone with information that could solve these crimes to call the police.
