JACKSON – Jackson police are investigating an Independence Day shooting at Battlefield Park that left three people wounded — including one critically.
According to Monday’s Clarion-Ledger, Antwan Carter, 33, of Jackson, is in critical condition at the University of Mississippi Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the head.
Edna Summerall, 48, was shot in the leg and her daughter, Anna Hammond, was shot in the foot. Their injures are not believed to be life-threatening, Jackson police spokesman Sgt. Joseph Daughtry said.
Daughtry says the shooting stemmed from a dispute between two families at the park, after a 4-year-old was hit with a firecracker.
