City man tries to end fight, is shot

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, June 23, 2009

A Vicksburg man was listed in good condition at a Jackson hospital this morning after being shot Monday night as he attempted to break up an argument.

Terry Brown, 37, 609 Kings Crossing, was at a barbecue at 605 Hutson St., at 11:50 p.m., when he intervened as two men believed to be brothers-in law argued, said Vicksburg Police Lt. Bobby Stewart. He declined to identify the two men, one of whom returned to the gathering with a shotgun and shot Brown once.

Brown was taken to River Region Medical Center and transferred to University Medical Center with multiple pellet injuries, Stewart said.
