Woman killed in triple shooting in Mississippi; arrest made
FOXWORTH, Miss. (AP) — A Louisiana woman is in custody accused in a shooting in Mississippi that left one dead and two others wounded.
Deputies were called to an area of Highway 587 in Foxworth late Tuesday, WLBT-TV reported. Foxworth is an unincorporated community and is located about three miles southwest of Columbia along the west bank of the Pearl River.
Witnesses told deputies they saw two people run away after the gunfire.
One victim, 20-year-old Jada Jefferson, was pronounced dead from multiple gunshot wounds, authorities said. A 21-year-old was airlifted to an area hospital in critical condition and a third victim was treated at an area hospital for minor injuries and released.
Deputies tracked down one suspect and arrested Kyndall Carter, 19, of Bogalusa, Louisiana, on a charge of murder and two counts of aggravated assault. It was unknown if she has an attorney who could speak on her behalf.
Investigators are still working to find a second person of interest in the case.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Marion County Sheriff’s Office at 601-736-5051.
