Police said they were called to the Legacy Crossing Apartments off Highway 51 around 10:45 p.m. Friday.
Officers found two people suffering from gunshot wounds.
"I don’t know what happened, how it happened, all I know is I just woke up to police outside my window,” Cazell Alford said.
One victim died at Baptist DeSoto Hospital, police said. The other is still alive but in critical condition at Regional Medical Center.
Neighbors were surprised to find out what happened Saturday.
"It’s a nice, quiet neighborhood. I chose to be here to raise my son and have tranquility and peace of mind. With that said, it’s a shock to everyone too that things like that happen," Alford said.
Police are investigating. It's unclear at this time what led up to the shooting.
Southaven Police said the incident marked the second homicide of the year.
