MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A gray car and three suspects are being sought after a night of violence Tuesday evening in Meridian. Police say a man was shot four times at the Citgo on Highway 39.

Officers are on the lookout for two black males and a black female driver who were in a gray sedan.

The unidentified victim told the officers that he recognized the men in the car from when he was fired at by them a week ago. He said when he saw them Tuesday, he pulled out a gun and fired a round at them and they returned fire. .

The man was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

“When I spoke to him he started telling what really happened. He explained what happened a couple of weeks ago that lead to the first situation and then when he saw them again that day, he was honest about it. His story was a little jumbled due to the medication that he had in his system but after watching the video we learned what took place.”
