A Moss Point man is recovering after being shot in his driveway just after midnight on Wednesday, police say.

They fired at him and Brown fled on foot, Hutchins said. He flagged down a vehicle and was taken to Singing River Hospital.

The incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made.

Brown was a standout running back at Moss Point High School, graduating in 2008.
