The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department is investigating an alleged shooting downtown around 5:15 Thursday evening.
Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun said witnesses said they heard a shot fired after leaving the courthouse after a chancery court hearing may have fired a shot at another party in the case. No one was injured.
Based on a vehicle description, a traffic stop was made less than an hour later on Highway 80 West near Meehan.
Three people were taken into custody, but no charges were immediately filed.
