A 27-year-old man was killed in a shooting in Marshall County, according to officials.
According to the Marshall County Coroner told FOX13, the victim was found dead in the parking lot of a Marathon Gas station in Victoria, Mississippi.
“I really shouldn’t be coming back here,” said Nancy Stewart Sunday. She is in Victoria, Mississippi visiting her sister.
We asked her how she felt knowing someone’s body was found in this same parking lot not seven hours earlier.
“I never knew anything about a murder. I didn’t hear nothing about a murder last night,” she answered.
