Police investigate Moss Point shooting


Moss Point police are investigating a shooting Sunday that left a man injured, according to a release from the Moss Point Police Department.

Police got the initial report of the shooting around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, the release said, and were on their way there when officials at Singing River Hospital in Pascagoula called to say they already were treating the shooting victim, Andre Carter, no age or address given.

Police on Monday said a preliminary investigation indicates that the shooting occurred on Sherlawn Drive after Carter apparently got into some type of confrontation with the shooter. The suspect was not immediately identified because of the ongoing investigation.

The investigation was continuing Monday to determine what prompted the incident. No arrest had been made.

To report information, call the Moss Point Police Department at 475-1711.
