ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING IN DENNIS

ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING IN DENNIS

 

July 4, 2016

 

On July 4, 2016 at approximately 0211 hours (2:11 am) the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department responded to an ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING, that was received through 911, that occurred at 623 HWY 4 in Dennis, Mississippi.

The Victim was accidentally shot with a .9mm semi-automatic pistol and was airlifted to the North Mississippi Medical Center – Tupelo. It was determined at the scene through several eye witnesses that the witnesses there at the residence was passing around the handgun where it apparently was fired striking the Victim in the leg. Once the paramedics arrived on scene the Victim was placed in an Ambulance where he was prepped for air flight to the NMMC – Tupelo. Once there the Victim immediately went into surgery and now is in stable condition.

The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department is still investigating this shooting even though the preliminary results indicate it was an Accidental Shooting.
