JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police have identified the two men killed in the triple shooting in the 3100 block of Bailey Avenue, near Ridgeway Street.

They have been identified as 28-year-old Terrance Terry and 27-year-old Jovorski Blackmon. One other person was injured and taken to the hospital.

According to Sergeant Roderick Holmes, officers responded to Skonny’s BBQ shortly before 1:30 a.m., where they found two men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene and another was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Police later learned that a third man, who has not been identified yet, was taken to the hospital by private vehicle with a non-life-threatening arm injury.

Witnesses say Terry and Blackmon exited the business and shots were fired shortly after. The unidentified victim is believed to have also been injured during that time.

An unknown black male suspect wearing a gray hooded top was seen running north on Bailey Avenue shortly after the shootings.

This is an ongoing investigation and anyone with information about this incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 601-355-TIPS(8477). Your information could be worth up to $2,500 if it leads to an arrest.
