The Harrison County sheriff says a person has been killed by an accidental gun shot to the abdomen.
Around 11:45 p.m. on Saturday, Harrison County 911 dispatchers received a call for an ambulance and deputies to 1097 Ragon Road in Northwest Harrison County. The caller stated that a shot had been fired and one person had been injured.
Upon the arrival of deputies and EMS, a single victim, Ivan Dolley, 25, was found with a gunshot to his upper abdomen. Deputies found a witness doing CPR compressions on the victim.
