MOSS POINT, Miss. (WLOX) -- Moss Point Police are searching for a group of men responsible for killing a man after they broke into a home to rob people attending a Super Bowl party.

It happened Sunday around 10:44 p.m. at a home on Bellview Street, right across the street from Moss Point High School. Witnesses told police five or six armed men went into the home and began robbing people.

"They were like, 'I don't give a blank about no kids, I don't give a blank about no kids.' And next thing you know, we heard boom boom boom and a bunch of screaming," Keitisha Mitchell-Lofton recalled. "And when I fell, it was hard for me to get up and I was scared that they were going to come and shoot me just because I was there."

During the chaos, a 50-year-old man was shot and killed. Two other men were also shot and taken to Singing River Hospital. One victim was taken into surgery and is listed in stable condition. The other was treated and has been released.
