JACKSON, Tenn. — A shooting on North Fairgrounds Street sent one person to the hospital Wednesday, according to police. Officers said the shooting happened around 10:45 a.m. “It’s scary ’cause you don’t know where the bullets flying and everything,” Daquan Bryant, a neighbor, said. Jackson police said two people got into an argument that escalated and one person was shot in the leg. Officers said the shooting happened in an alley. “It’s a nice neighborhood, just be bad stuff be happening at the wrong time,” Bryant said. Officers said the gunman got away on foot. Investigators said they are looking for a black man wearing dark clothes. “It gets pretty bad because you worry about the bullets reflecting through the house,” Cody Kulikowski, a neighbor, said. Bryant said the shooting does not surprise him. “It concerns me because I have a daughter that goes to school and I just want her to be safe when she gets home from school,” he said. Police said the victim is expected to be OK. Investigators said they have a police camera nearby and plan to review the footage for clues.
