JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Jackson Police are looking for the person responsible for sending six people to the hospital after a shooting Friday night.

It happened during a block party where hundreds of people gathered at the corner of Lorenze and West Street.

WJTV spoke with a neighbor who says this fun Friday night turned into mass chaos when shots rang out.

She says several people were hurt because people were trampling over one another trying to get to safety.

“People were jumping over cars, hiding to the backyard, jumping over fences; it was just terrible, like when gun shots break out, the only thing you think about is trying to save yourself and protect your life.”

All victims are expected to recover.

Officials believe the gunman was a black male wearing a grey sweatshirt.

If you have any information that could help in this investigation, please call the Jackson Police Department at (601) 960 -1234.
