Woman Dead, Man Recovering after Meridian Shooting

Meridian, Miss. One woman has died and a man is recovering after a shooting in Meridian on Thursday morning.

Police say it happened about 11:00 Thursday morning in the 1600 block of 6th Avenue. Lieutenant John Griffith says when officers arrived on the scene, they found both a male and female with gunshot wounds. Both individuals were taken to the hospital where the female later died.

"Based on initial investigations, they were the only two at home and we're not ruling anything out," Griffith explains. "Detectives are still working the case, trying to put together the pieces. And we have indications that this may be some type of domestic disturbance."

Griffith says the two individuals involved in the shooting were boyfriend and girlfriend. The male is being treated at UMC in Jackson.
