The shooting happened lThursday afternoon around 5:30 p.m. at Madison and Third streets near the Madison Wash & Dry laundromat.
Corinth Police Chief Ralph Dance said one person was transported to an area hospital with a single gun shot wound to the abdomen.
“It started as a altercation between two men in the middle of Madison Street. The suspect apparently approached a stopped car driven by the victim. There was apparently a fight between the two that resulted in the suspect shooting the victim,” said Dance. “We are unsure what sparked the altercation.”
Officials were first dispatched to the area of Webster and Third streets, before being lead to the actual crime scene one block over in a heavy residential area on the edge of the historic district of downtown Corinth.
“The shooting is under investigation,” said Dance. “We are unsure if any charges will be filed at this time.”
Two Magnolia EMS ambulances responded, in addition to units from the Corinth Fire Department and Corinth PD.
Air Evac was also dispatched to the scene, but never landed.
