VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Christmas Eve shooting in downtown Vicksburg has left five people injured. Police were called to L.D.’s lounge just before midnight Sunday and found one victim, Ledarius Sproulls, outside on the ground. Sprouls was transported to UMMC in Jackson for treatment. Four others, Treyvonne Williams, Zarian Price, Jobie Gordon and Erica Harris had already been taken to Merit Health River Region Medical Center by private vehicles. None of the injuries appear to be life-threatening. Police have detained 21-year-old Denzell Watts for questioning. L.D.’s lounge, which according to Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs has been the scene of other shootings has been closed until the owner can come to an agreement with the city for providing upgraded security. A restaurant and catering business at the site are not affected by the closure order.
