MARSHALL CO., Miss. (WMC) - Marshall County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal shootout on the highway.

The shooting happened between two vehicles on Highway 178 around 10:30 p.m. Monday in Marshall County.

Deputies were called to the scene of a crash where they found three people that had been shot.

They found a Toyota Camry flipped on its side after veering off the road when those shots were fired. It also had multiple bullet holes.

Investigators say at least 30 shots were fired.

The shooting left one person dead and 2 still admitted to Regional One Medical Center.

Both of the patients at Regional One are 18 years old, one of them is on life support and the other is listed as “very critical,” according to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office.

While investigators were responding to the shooting on Highway 178, they say an additional gunshot victim was dropped off by a private vehicle at Holly Springs Medical Center. That person, who just turned 21 on Sunday, was pronounced dead.

Investigators are pleading with anyone who knows anything to come forward with information.

“We’re not just asking kids, or that generation. We’re asking parents who hear something to let us know what’s going on so we can continue to develop all the information we need to get. Then, we can put these case files together and prosecute the people for killing these kids,” said Kelly McMillen with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office

McMillen says investigators are looking for 2 individuals that they believe may have information.

No arrests have been made at this time. If you have any information on the case contact Marshall County Sherriff’s Office.
