JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A second man has died in the shooting Sunday night on Corinth Street. Police say 21-year-old Terrance Jenkins, who had been in critical condition, died Monday.

Police were called to the 1,200 block of Corinth Street last night, where three people had been shot.

Corinth Street in west Jackson is just off Lynch Street and law enforcement officers say it's a known hot-spot of drug activity.

A man who lives near-by says the street is a hang-out for young people. He says guns are not the solution to arguments. "An unfortunate situation. It really was senseless and everything. I just fell like that you know maybe we need to resolve the situation other that resorting to drastic measures like this."

While in the area, we found graffiti on an abandoned house. We also found the same graffiti on YouTube posted by a group calling itself "The Lynch Street Profit Gang".

Victor Williams, 32, died last night.

Ricky Archie, 23, is still hospitalized in stable condition. He has felony crack cocaine charges and several misdemeanors pending against him.

Investigators believe an argument led to the shooting. No arrests have been made in this case.
