Hancock County

Deputies thought he was shot in the head, but now they’re not sure

A man with a head wound has been treated at a Picayune hospital and released.

Hancock County sheriff’s officials first said the man had been shot in the head Tuesday morning. But Chief Deputy Don Bass said glass might have hit the man in the head.

His wound is superficial. The man, who has not been identified, was arguing with another man over a woman. The other man fired a gun into the pickup truck where the victim was sitting, at his home on Mississippi 53 near 603.

Bass said glass from the pickup might have hit the victim rather than a bullet.

At this point, Bass said, the man is uncertain whether he even wants to press charges.
