TUPELO – A late night shooting sent one man to the hospital over the weekend.
A group of people were hanging out in an area between Dodge’s Chicken Store and Walmart on West Main at about 2 a.m. Saturday. Someone within the group had a gun and fired it, and one man was hit in the buttocks, said Captain Tim Tate with the Tupelo Police Department.
Tate said the injury was “superficial” but that the man was transported to North Mississippi Medical Center.
Though the incident is still under investigation, Tate said the man was not intentionally shot.
