JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba and City Council President Aaron Banks were set to discuss a spike in violence in the city.

This comes after a weekend where seven people were shot across the city on Sunday, and a man was shot and killed during a shootout at a funeral home on Saturday.

The press conference has since been canceled. It’s unclear if it will be rescheduled.
