MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A drive-by shooting happened Sunday night on Lauderdale-Toomsuba Road. Around 7:40 deputies were dispatched to the 7800 block.

There were reports of gunshots being heard in the area and multiple cars and houses were hit by gunfire.

The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department says there are no known eyewitnesses and no immediate suspects but a thorough investigation is ongoing.

"When you have this many vehicles shot as well as many homes, it certainly lends itself to be gang-related. Meridian Police Department investigated a shooting this past weekend and we will certainly look and see, by any chance, is this associated with that shooting from this past weekend?" said Lauderdale County Sheriff Billy Sollie.

If you have any information on this shooting you're asked to call Crimestoppers at 855-485-8477.
