JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Jackson Police say a 7-year-old girl was shot overnight on Greenview Dr.
Commander Tyree Jones with the Jackson Police Department says the girl was in a truck with a woman and another child when someone fired shots into it.
The woman stopped at the Church’s Chicken on Terry Road for help.
Jones said several adults had an argument on Greenview which led to the shooting. Shots were fired at the truck and the rear glass was shot out.
We’re told the 7-year-old is currently in stable condition. Police say a 3-year-old was also in the truck at the time of the shooting. The 3-year-old was not hurt.
Commander Jones says the suspect in this case is 28-year-old Donald Nunnery. Officers said Nunnery turned himself in to police. He is charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of shooting into an occupied vehicle.
Nunnery was placed on house arrest and told not to make contact with the others who were involved in the altercation.
