McComb man airlifted to Jackson after being shot by woman near snow cone stand
MCCOMB, Miss. (WLBT) - A man was airlifted to Jackson after he was shot by a woman next to a snow cone stand in McComb.
According to Captain and Interim Police Chief Steve Powell, the shooting occurred Thursday evening between Delaware Avenue and Harrison Avenue.
It is believed to be a domestic situation.
The woman is in custody and the victim is being treated at a Jackson hospital. No charges have been filed at this time.
One McComb resident, who asked not to be identified, told WLBT she had just finished paying a water bill and securing her child in his car seat when she heard the shot and looked up to see someone lying on the ground.
She said she was badly shaken by the experience.
“What if I’d been finishing up just five minutes before?” she said, fighting back tears.
A popular McComb Facebook site quickly became a forum for worried residents.
One commenter made reference to a city curfew that went into effect last night - a response to increased gun violence.
“Now that the curfew has taken place, it’s happening in the daytime,” the commenter said of the shooting.
