McComb police are looking for a man who allegedly fatally shot a woman and wounded two others.

Police Chief Garland Ward told WJTV that Shamarkese Smith, 29, was shot while driving on Delaware Avenue around 4:30 a.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe the shooting may have followed a fight at the Icehouse.

The other two victims, a man and a young teenage girl, were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Police are now looking for Darnell Jacques Bright as a person of interest in the shooting. A warrant has been issued for his arrest on charges of discharging a weapon in the city limits and three counts of aggravated assault manifesting extreme indifference to life.

Bright is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the McComb police department at 601-684-3214.
