While reports originally stated that three people had been shot at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the Jackson Police Department has now stated that two children have been shot near the campus. 

Reports state that the children are 1 and 3-years-old and that one was shot in the leg while the other was shot in the torso. The children are listed in stable condition.

UMMC sent out an alert to students and staff stating that there was an active shooter inside of Parking Garage B on campus. The alert stated that “this is not a drill.”

UMMC has since sent out an update and given an “all clear”. Governor Bryant issued the following statement as the investigation continues.

“We are thankful there was no active shooter situation at UMMC. Now the investigation begins to find who committed this terrible crime. Please pray for the young children that were injured.”

Stay tuned for more updates.
