JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Jackson Police have made an arrest in the shooting of two women that happened on Ridgeway Street earlier this week. Additionally, police believe one of the victims in the shooting could be related to a victim of another shooting that injured a woman and two 2-year-olds.

27-year-old Nankedia Lowe has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and a convicted felon in possession of a firearm in the shooting of Tywana Lewis and her 17-year-old daughter. Lowe surrendered herself to investigators Wednesday and is currently awaiting her initial court appearance.
