JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Christopher Lee, a 28-year old man, died Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021, after an apparent shootout with other individuals at a gas station, according to police.

JPD spokesperson Sam Brown said the incident took place at the Jasco gas station, located on the corner of West Woodrow Wilson Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

Brown said Lee was shot multiple times inside the gas station and died at the scene.

Investigators believe the man was ambushed by three people.
