BYRAM, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Gunfire erupted in a Byram subdivision Monday launching an investigation by police.

Officers were at a home in the 300 block of Riverton Court in the Barrington Subdivision around 1:30 p.m.

It is located off Henderson Road in Byram.

WLBT has learned that a woman reportedly shot her husband at the home.

A crime scene unit gathered evidence at the scene.

Police were at two locations in the subdivision.

On nearby Barrington Drive, a small child was removed from a silver Maxima and placed into a squad car.

Several residents gathered to find out what happened at the home in the center of the cul-de-sac.

A neighbor across the street on Wellington Drive was surprised to see officers running past his home.

"Two or three police came running. They were running real fast, and they went back out and then came back, went up the road and turned around and came back and went out. Then about 15 minutes later the ambulance came," said Johnny Courtney.

Byram police refused to comment or release any details about the shooting investigation.
