JACKSON, Tenn. — Jackson police investigate an early morning shooting which injured two people.

Shooting InvestigationOfficers say the shooting happened around 1:30 a.m. Monday in the 200 block of Morningside Drive.

There were two victims, according to police, but their injuries were non life-threatening. At this time, the motive is not known.

Police said they have no one in custody, and the only description of suspects so far is two black men dressed in black clothing.

This is still an open investigation. If you have any information that could help, call Jackson police at 731-425-8400.

Weather Update: 11:00 AM Monday

Temps haven’t wavered too much since yesterday afternoon. The overcast skies have kept things steady across the region. There is some patchy fog possible first thing this morning but otherwise things are calm and cool to start the work week. Afternoon high temps today should reach into the upper 40s to low 50s out ahead of the rain.

The chance for rain returns as the day goes on, especially after the noon hour. The best chance for showers returns between 5 PM and 7 PM and lingering into the overnight hours of Tuesday. Overnight low temps fall into the mid 40s.

Tonight we look to deal with the drizzle and light rain again. It could be heavy at times but we are looking at another 0.5″ or close to an 1″ in some places.

The last of a series of frontal systems will push through Wednesday night. This will bring reinforcing cold air and a slight chance for showers overnight Wednesday into Thursday. There doesn’t look to be widespread showers like we have been getting. It’ll be hit or miss and the cold air moving in, is going to help dry out the atmosphere.

The sunshine returns by the end of the week but the cold air arrives too. Overnight temps look to drop into the teens by early Friday morning and highs in the 30s both Thursday and Friday.

I hope you’re ready for the crisp and bone-chilling weather!

CROCKETT COUNTY, Tenn. — It’s the time of year to give, and one local organization is doing that and more.

unnamed-2Neighbors Offering Assistance and Hope also known as N.O.A.H.  is dedicated to helping families in Crockett Co. who are faced with a catastrophic illness or event.

The group kicked off it’s fourth annual “Festival of Trees” fundraiser this weekend in Alamo.

Organizers say  fundraisers like these make it possible for them to give back to the community.

“I had a lady in here a while ago saying that she would not miss attending today,” Mary Marvin, chairwoman for the non-profit group said. ” She talked about how much N.O.A.H. had helped her, and she just cried.”

28 different-themed trees decorated by businesses and individuals lit up the building beside Alamo Food Rite.

Those who came to the event had a chance to vote on their favorite tree by donating to the group, snack on baked goods and sip hot cider.

All money raised at the fundraiser will be used to help those in Crockett Co. suffering from cancer and other catastrophic events and illnesses.

“We’re not a long term fix, but we help them get through some of their problems, and let them know people care about them,” Marvin said.

N.O.A.H. has different representatives all over Crockett Co. that find people and families in need of some extra help.

They help in all sorts of ways, such as helping a family pay their electrical bills.

So far, they have assisted 575 families in the county and paid more than $450,000 in assistance.

N.O.A.H. Volunteers say they want those numbers to continue to grow.

“We do want to invite everybody to come out and participate because this is money that is being put right back in Crockett Co, 100 percent,” Ken Davis, who serves on the board of the group said.

The trees will also be displayed Dec. 10  from 10-5 and Dec. 11 from 1-4.

Admission to the event is $5.

Metropolitan Nashville police say in a news release that 61-year-old Al Baker was shot early Sunday outside a convenience store.

The statement says the suspect entered the store, took money from a clerk’s cash register at gunpoint and fled. As he left the store, police say he fired multiple shots at Baker, who was inside the delivery truck.

Baker drove away and his truck came to a stop at a pharmacy. He died at the scene.

The suspect fled on foot.

screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-5-49-27-pmHENDERSON COUNTY, Tenn — More than a dozen animals have been rescued from a mobile home in Henderson county after the sheriff’s department received information about animals being neglected.

President of the Animal Rescue Corps, Scotland Haisley said “this is bad these animals are suffering significantly as you can see I’ve got a respiratory mask on even with this mask that is meant to protect my lungs and my breathing I’m having a hard time in that building.”

The sheriff’s department along with ARC arrived to the mobile home on dunn lane around 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

 

Sgt. Jeremiah Adams said “arrest has been made at this point though I can’t release any other information on who that subject is other than a resident here from Henderson county.”

A horse was found roped off outside and more than a dozen cats and dogs were inside.

“At this time we don’t have an exact number because it’s kind of chaotic in there.” Sgt. Adams said “but I say we have anywhere from 12 to 15 possibly.”

Rescuers said law enforcement officers had a seizure warrant to get the animals out of the horrific conditions, and they even spoke with the homeowner.

“We’ve already met with the owner of the property who has surrendered 100% of these animals over to Animal Rescue Corps, which allows us to get them on their road to recovery that much sooner.” Haisley said.

Haisley described the inside of the home having several inches of feces built up inside and said he could tell the home hasn’t been kept up in years.

“When you don’t clean up animals urine and feces it turns into an acid which aerosols and creates an ammonia which is incredibly dangerous to the animals and the people.” Haisley said.

Haisley said the animals are going to have significant long term medical problems as a result of the living conditions. The animals were taken to an emergency animal shelter in Lebanon, Tennessee where a team of vets will be there waiting to care for them.

JACKSON, Tenn. — Christmas came early this year in West Tennessee as people came out to enjoy the second annual Christmas in the City.

unnamed-1More than 60 non-profit vendors sold everything from home-baked goods, gifts and artwork at the event in downtown Jackson.

But volunteers say raising money was not the only goal of the event.

“It’s really cool to just have local organizations coming together and supporting each other and it’s a great way to kick off the Christmas season,” Trevor Fox, a volunteer at the event said.

The Jackson Chamber of Commerce paired with the West Tennessee Farmer’s Market to put on the big day.

People came from all over the area to participate.

“I love getting to see people from other communities coming out and bringing what they have to Jackson,” Fox, a Union University student, said.

Live reindeer and Santa’s newly restored house were just a few of the main attractions.

Those who hosted booths said it was a great way for non-profit organizations to get the word out about their businesses in the community.

“Being a director of a nonprofit I think it is so great to have an opportunity to be a part of an event here in Jackson to really bring people together,” Melinda Hearn, executive director of the Jackson Arts Council said.

Beth James, executive director for Jackson Center for Independent Living says events like these are important to them.

“It just reminds everybody how important it is to support the non-profits in West Tennessee,” she said. “They take care of a lot of needs that fall through the cracks, and for a lot of us these funds are really important.”

Organizers say the overall goal of the event was to bring the community together, and they are already planning for next year’s event.
