When officers arrived, they learned that the shooting had happened on the west side of Ballard Park.

Officers and detectives immediately responded to Ballard Park, where they recovered multiple pieces of evidence. Following further investigation, Tupelo Police Detectives determined that the incident was isolated and between people who knew each other.
