JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A shooting in south Jackson ends with the victim crashing his car into a house.  The shooting happened just after 1:00 p.m. Thursday in the 4317 of Wildwood Drive.  The vehicle came to rest blocks away on Pine Cove.

Jackson police said the victim had gotten into an altercation with another person before shots were fired.  They did not have a description of the gunman by Monday evening.  The victim managed to drive his white Chevy Tahoe about a mile away from the scene before veering off the road and striking Michelle Williams' home.

"I just know we were in the house getting ready to lie down for a nap and the whole house just shook.  We heard a loud bang and the house shook.  We ran to the front door to find out what it was and we noticed tire marks in our front yard and ran outside and noticed the truck was in the back yard here," said Williams.

AMR took the victim to University Medical Center.  Jackson Police are not releasing his name or the extent of his injuries at this time.
