Around 9:30pm Wednesday shots rang out in an area that is currently filled with dozens of camper trailers and hundreds of people visiting for Cruisin’ the Coast.

Police said two vehicles were exchanging gunfire when a man in town for the weeklong car show was shot one time in the chest.

Around 2:30am Thursday, a second victim went to the hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound, said Biloxi Police Capt. Brian Dykes. The second victim is believed to be connected to the shooter, said the captain.

According to police, shots were fired on the northwest corner of Rodenberg and Highway 90. The victim was near the southeast corner of that intersection when he was shot.

“Two individuals in two separate vehicles were shooting, which appears at this time to be at each other… As to what prompted the shooting, we are investigating. We will be reviewing all the video sources in the area and a better description of the individual is forthcoming,” said Dykes.
