JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Police say a road-rage incident led to gunfire near a Jackson school this morning. Police found the shooting victim after he called 911 from his home at 5917 Franklin D. Roosevelt Street in the Presidential Hills neighborhood. The unidentified victim was sent by ambulance to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Police say he told them someone shot at his vehicle up to 5 times, after a road-rage incident on Highway 49, near Northwest Middle School. The bullets shattered the driver's side window of the victim's SUV. It wasn't clear if the glass caused his injuries, or if he was actually struck by a bullet.

Commander Ron Sampson from Precinct 3 told reporters, "He was involved in an altercation with gold vehicle going north on 49, he was attempting to turn from the far lane to the inside lane so he could turn into the Presidential Hills there was some kind of back and forth conversation then the driver of the gold vehicle fired 4-5 shots into his vehicle."

Investigators say the shooter is described as a black male. He was driving a gold colored, late model Buick or Chevy.  Officers searched the area where the shooting took place, but have not made any arrests in this case.
