JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A woman was carjacked at gunpoint at a south Jackson apartment complex late Saturday night.  It happened around 10:30 p.m. at the Covington Park Apartments off the I-55 south Frontage Road.

The apartment complex is gated and well lit.  Myesha Scott had just parked to visit a friend.  That's when she said a black male, about 16 or 17-years-old wearing a white T-shirt and jeans, pulled out a large caliber handgun.  Scott said she was looking down the barrel of the gun when he forced her to turn over her purse and keys.

"He had a gun to my face and he asked for my keys and all my possessions and it was just like he didn't take any time.  He just snatched everything and took off because he had a gun and I didn't.  It's a shame now that you can't work for anything nice because it gets taken," said Scott. 

Scott's car is a 2007 four door white mercury Milan with tinted windows and a Rankin County tag.  If you have any information on this vehicle's location please call the Jackson Police Department at 601-960-1234.
