COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Two people are in custody after a drive-by shooting in a Columbus neighborhood.

The shooting happened on Martin Luther King Jr Drive shortly after 3 p.m. Friday and within minutes, police responding to the scene stopped a suspect vehicle a few blocks away on 14th Avenue North.

Two people inside the vehicle are being questioned. Officers say they confiscated a stolen 9 mm handgun found on one of the two suspects. The gun had been reported in Lowndes County. No one was injured in the shooting.

Police say the shooting apparently was not related to a burglary and chase in the same area earlier Friday afternoon.
