JPD Commander Tyree Jones says one man has been killed and another injured in a shooting on Montgomery Drive.
Jones said Saturday night a 26-year-old man was killed after being shot multiple times.
Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart identified the victim as Heron Kendricks.
Commander Jones said an 18-year-old man, was shot twice and is in stable condition at Merit Health Hospital.
We are told the two men were arguing which lead to the gunfire. Jones says officials believe the shooting happened in a Toyota Camry that both men were in, at the time of the incident.
"We have prayed out here together and we're just asking everybody to work on conflict resolution and we all just need to get along, be a better nation. Things are happening at a rapid pace and we want to get it under control but we need the public's help," said JPD Commander Jarratt Taylor.
The name of the 18-year-old victim has not been released at this time.
