According to the Pearl Police Department, there was an incident of several fights at the carnival being held at the Outlets of Mississippi on Saturday night.
At one point somebody fired a gun into the air.
There were no injuries and it was not a shootout of any kind.
The entire area was cleared by Pearl Police Officers with the help of Rankin County Sheriff’s deputies. Police say no arrests have been made at this time.
Mayor Jake Windham has spoken to the Outlets and asked the carnival hours be shortened significantly or canceled altogether and guaranteed that Pearl Police will now flood the area for the duration of the carnival.
“This will not be tolerated in our city,” said Mayor Windham. “It is truly a shame that families can not enjoy themselves because of ridiculous behavior.”
