Drive-By Shooting in Gulfport
The Gulfport Police Department is searching for a suspect involved in a drive-by shooting on the corner of Three Rivers Road and Reservation Drive, shortly after noon today.

Gulfport police tell News 25 that this doesn’t appear to be a random incident and an investigation is currently underway to determine the cause of the incident. Gulfport Police Department Public Information officer Sgt.
