JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson Police are looking for a car thief who might have a gunshot wound. It's unclear if the thief was hit by the gunfire, but he took off in the Toyota 4-Runner parked at 2719 Pinedale Street in Jackson.

Police tell us the homeowner had stopped by to check on his property, and came outside and fired several shots when he noticed his vehicle leaving the driveway.

Neighbors were rattled by the gunshots, around 8:30 a.m.

"Me and my girl were in the bed sleeping. We just hear about 5-6 gunshots, woke up, what's going on? We just stayed in the bed," says Mikal Moore, who lives nearby.

"We just heard gunshots so I thought someone was just shooting in the air. I ain't know anything was going on down there."

The neighbor says a woman and her two daughters had been staying in the home.
