MARSHALL COUNTY, Miss. — Marshall County deputies are investigating after a man was found dead in a car wash at Moore’s Grocery on Highway 72.
The victim – Terrance Hampton – was reportedly found face down behind the building after shots were fired around 10 p.m. Sunday.
Some of the victim’s friends told WREG a man came out of the bushes behind the building with a shirt over his face and shot Hampton at least five times.
“I was up here. I really just heard the gun shot and that made me turn around and look. I heard five shots,” a witness said.
He says he then saw Hampton’s body face down on the ground.
WREG was there as dozens of bystanders watched as deputies roped off the area for their investigation. Officers were on location overnight, but so far have not released any information.
James Hale works at the laundry mat located in the same parking lot.
He said he left work right before the shooting, and he knows the victim. “I don’t know. It’s crazy. It’s crazy.”
There are surveillance cameras all over this parking lot, including on the corner of a business pointed toward the car wash.
We still don’t know what led up to the shooting or if anyone was taken into custody.
