JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two people are in custody in connection with a deadly shooting that took place at the Jubilee gas station on the corner of Highway 80 and Lynch Street in Jackson. 

A little after 7 pm on Thursday, an individual got into some kind of altercation with a woman while she was sitting in her car at the gas pump. 

Shots rang out shortly afterward. The man holding a weapon reached inside the car and fired multiple times. 

The man then got into his car, a black Dodge Avenger, with an unidentified woman who was behind the wheel, and drove off. 

Two hours later, Jackson police were able to capture and arrest the two on Washington Street. 

A witness, Ronnie Manuel, was at the service station when shots rang out.

"He went down to the car, and she handed him something out of the car, and once he handed her something he started hitting her and then he shot her, but I didn't see it until after I saw the cameras in the store. But when I heard it first, what happened was, I heard five gunshots like pow, pow, pow, pow," Manuel said.

JPD Commander Tyree Jones said, "I can't tell you at this particular time what her intentions were, if she was here to meet somebody, if she was here to pump gas. It's too early to tell right now exactly what transpired that led to the shooting."

All these are questions that law enforcement is working feverishly to get to the bottom of.

They're going to be looking at surveillance video from this gas station to try and figure out exactly what happened, why this altercation lead to gunfire, and hopefully give some closure for the victim's family.
