2 shot during domestic dispute in Raymond

RAYMOND, Miss. (WJTV) — Two people were injured in a late night shooting in Raymond, officials said.

Major Pete Luke said Hinds County Sheriff investigators went to a home on Snake Creek Road around 11 p.m. Sunday to respond to the scene.

Sheriff’s deputies said Jacquelent Williams called 911 because her ex-boyfriend, Desmond Watkins, was allegedly making threats toward her. Her current boyfriend was also on the scene when the fight occurred.

Her boyfriend fired a warning shot at the ex with a rifle, but Williams got a handgun and started firing shots, deputies said. She accidentally hit her brother in the head.

Watkins left the scene. Investigators said he showed up at a hospital to be treated for a bullet wound in his arm.

Williams’ brother is in critical condition at the hospital.

Hinds County officials said court records indicate that Williams filed domestic violence charges against Watkins in November of this year.

No arrests have been made. This investigation is ongoing.
