ABERDEEN – One person was hospitalized Wednesday after an early morning shooting in Aberdeen.
“We were called to 20605 White Rock Road after midnight for a domestic dispute between a 32-year-old male and 32-year-old female at the residence,” said Monroe County Sheriff Andy Hood. “Later this morning at approximately 2 a.m., we were notified that male had been shot at the same residence and transported to Aberdeen Hospital.”
The man had been shot once in the abdomen and was airlifted to North Mississippi Medical Center, according to investigators.
