JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police are investigating a shooting at Battlefield Park.  

We're told two people were shot in the incident.

Witnesses say three men armed with guns walked up to the group of victims and asked for their money.  

One person gave up their wallet, and one of the men opened fire.

One of the victims was hospitalized, after running across highway 80 from the shooting scene. 

A second victim who was grazed by a bullet on the hand was treated at the scene.

This is the second shooting in the park in recent weeks.

On December 17th, a man was shot in the leg during the robbery of a group of men, who had just finished a soccer game.
