JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police say a shooting on River Oaks Boulevard left a pizza delivery driver hospitalized Friday night. It happened sometime before 6 p.m. after a delivery on that street.

Officer Colendula Green said an unknown male approached the driver and attempted to take his vehicle, a red Ford Mustang. When the driver refused to give into the demands, the suspect fired one shot, striking the 22-year-old male victim in the left thigh.

His injuries are not considered life-threatening, Green said.

One neighbor said she heard a gunshot, then saw a silver or gray pickup truck flee the scene.

The unidentified delivery driver works for Hungry Howie's, likely coming from the location off Old Canton Road in Ridgeland.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Jackson police.
