Responding deputies determined that a male subject had been shot in the foot. The male subject was transported to Jackson Hospital for treatment.

During the course of the investigation, deputies were able to determine that a group of young people were gathered in the parking. One of the persons present had arraigned a meeting with four other subjects for the purpose of selling them marijuana. The subjects arrived and attempted to rob the individual rather than pay him.
