It’s becoming more and more routine every day to receive the news that Jackson has had multiple shootings.
On Thursday, Jackson police are working on four shootings in less than a day. Details on the incidents are sketchy so far, and at this point it’s unclear if there are suspects.

- On Wednesday night just before 11 p.m. in the 3000 block of Woodbine Street, a man was wounded after multiple shots were fired by suspects in an unknown vehicle. The victim was transported and last listed as stable, though his condition is unclear.
- The next shooting occurred just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday on University Blvd near Porter Street. Unknown suspects fired shots into a vehicle, wounding a man inside. The victim was transported by private and is listed in critical condition.
- Another shooting occurred just after 2:30 a.m. in the 1000 block of Lanier Avenue when a man was wounded by several shots fired into a home. The victim was transported and last listed as stable, though his condition is unknown.
