JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Police are working to figure out who shot a 17 year-old on Cox Street last night.
It happened just before 11 p.m. Someone shot Derrick Garner in the chest. His friends tried to drive him to the hospital but spotted an ambulance on the way and flagged down paramedics for help.
Just last Saturday afternoon, a block away from last night's shooting, a male passenger was shot while he and his female driver were fleeing the scene of a fight on Cox Street. His injuries were not life threatening.
