JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police have released surveillance video of the violent attack at a gas station early Saturday morning. Police responded to the Gas Stop located at 5436 N. State St., around 1:30 a.m.

The video shows three men getting out of what police say is a blue or purple Oldsmobile or Buick sedan. The vehicle pulled up to a pump and the men got out and started firing in all directions before they fled in the dark vehicle.

Officer Colendula Green with the Jackson Police Department says a 20-year-old man was shot eight times, and a 22-year-old woman sitting in a white Toyota was struck three times in the leg. Both were transported to a Jackson hospital.

Green said the male victim was leaving the store and stopped to talk to the woman, who is a friend. While they were talking, the group of men opened fire on them, according to Green.

"This is a serious incident, due to the fact that these subjects came into the parking lot with no regard of life..period, and they just began firing shots at this male victim," said Green.

Police say both unidentified victims are recovering at a local hospital. 

No arrest has been made, but police have a message for the shooters.

"We are gonna do our jobs and we are gonna bring them to justice. So if you are out there, we are asking you to turn yourself in because if not, we're gonna make sure we find you," said Green.

If you have any information on this shooting, please call Jackson police at 601-960-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS.
