Two Gunshot Victims in Stable Condition

Two people injured by gunfire Sunday afternoon in Meridian were reported in stable condition Monday.

The shooting happened around 2:41 p.m. in the 3200 block of 20th Street.

The two men were shot as they sat in a vehicle, which was also struck several times

Police say one shooting victim was struck in the upper shoulder and neck, the other in the lowed leg.

The MPD says the investigation also revealed that other victims in the area suffered property due to stray gunfire. Officials say detectives are still interviewing possible witnesses, processing evidence and following up on suspect leads.

Police say this shooting was not connected in any way to a shooting incident Apr. 4 at Highland Park.

No arrests have been made in the Apr. 11 shooting.

    What's wrong is the devil is slowly taking over Earth: and we the people are letting him. Going around shooting people, doing drugs, having sex before marraige, and that is exactly what the devil wants us to do. We are all CHILDREN OF GOD... it is time we all start praying and living right; so that one day God will save us from this place!!!

    For the ignorant one who said his brother was in the White House, please stop perpetuating racist tensions. I realize from your post that ignorance is bliss but at some point you have to realize that regardless of how many presidents(black or white) are in office, the government cannot fix everything. It comes from homes!!!!! THere must be fathers and mothers not grandmothers and aunts raising the children. Values must be displayed and taught not sent to school to learn from their teachers. THe police are not the reason violence is worse, it is the OFFENDERS!! IF you want change it begins with YOU!!!

    Just look at the way half of the community acts. You can read it all on here. To REDLINE CITIZEN...seriously? are you joking?... Last time I checked WHITE PEOPLE were not the only ones smoking crystal meth. HOWEVER- BLACK PEOPLE are not the only ones that shoot people. GET OVER IT. live your own life. and don't worry about race. that is what is wrong with America. and NOBODY cares about your "brother" in the White House. I have noticed that all black people are brothers or sisters or cousins. so ya'll stick together and keep shooting each other and harming innocent children. IT IS TOTALLY NORMAL TO ACT THAT WAY????? GET REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WHY IS EVERYONE SHOOTING IN MERIDIAN... all of a sudden it seems like there is a shooting every week or two...people need to CALM DOWN. people need to be LOCKED UP FOR THE CRIME THEY DO! The Justice System is suppose to protect the community...I don't feel safe in the City of Meridian anymore. It has become a dangerous place! All these fools losing their minds and freaking out need to be sent to Whitfield.

    I just have a question for Anonymous who lives in the area. Do you report shots being fired? Does any of your neighbors? If you are- GREAT. Make sure everyone around you is also. If you aren't reporting it, then why? How can we expect things to change if we continue to just ignore it and hope it goes away?

    I AGREE WITH JANICE .... PARENTS NEED TO GET A HOLD TO THEIR OUT OF CONTROL KIDS AND TEENS RUNNING OUR TOWN DOWN... SHOOTINGS AND FIGHTS ALL THE TIME AND IN A PUBLIC PARK WHERE KIDS PLAY AT THAT ... THIS HAS GOT TO STOP... OR WE CAN ALL MOVE OUT OF MERIDIAN AND LEAVE THEM TO THEMSELVES THEN WE CAN ASK THEM IF ITS A RACE ISSUE OR NOT. AND FOR THE METH HEADS FOR THE MOST PART THEY JUST COOK THAT CRAP THEMSELVES IN THEIR RUN DOWN TRAILERS AND BLOW THIER HOUSES UP..U DONT SEE THEM RUNNING AROUND SHOOTING UP EVERYONE INCLUDING INNOCENT KIDS.
