JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Hinds County coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart says 16 year-old Devonte McGee was killed early Monday morning in Jackson.
McGee's body was found on the ground in the 1100 block of Violet Street around 3:00 a.m. 

JPD spokeswoman Colendula Green says the teen was shot in the chest. Police aren't sure why McGee was shot or who shot him, but our crew was on the scene when two men were handcuffed and taken away in police cars.

A woman who was nearby and wants to remain anonymous says she and her family heard the gunshots.

"We heard gunshots eight times. We heard bam, bam, bam, the last one sounded real real loud. My daughter-in-law and my stepdaughter we heard it, but when we hear gunshots we don't peep out because we're afraid they're going to see us and do something to us."

If you can help Jackson police solve this crime call Crimestoppers at 601-355-TIPS.
