The Jackson Police Department has identified a man found dead in a parking lot near Winter Street as 19-year-old Willie Clark. 

Shortly after 7:30 p.m., officers responded to a parking lot at the corner of University Boulevard and Winter Street, where they found an unresponsive man lying on the ground.

Though it is believed that some type of fight took place before Clark was shot, is still unclear what lead to the shooting.

No suspects are known at this time. 

Initially, it appeared that the victim suffered a facial injury but was later determined that the victim had been shot in the upper chest. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. 

"The business was open at the time at the time this situation took place," said JPD Sgt. Holmes. "Right now, we don't know how many people saw anything or what they saw. We do that there was some type of altercation in the parking lot, shots were fired, and this individual lost his life."

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS(8477).

This is a developing story. We will update this as more information becomes available. 

This investigation is ongoing.
