Moss Point Police: Gunman used an AK-47

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

It's the kind of weapon you'd expect to hear about being used in a street fight in Baghdad, not South Mississippi. But Moss Point Police now say one of the gunmen in Thursday's deadly drive by shooting used an AK-47 to spray bullets across a street where more than a dozen children were playing.

Investigators say they have a "person of interest" in custody.

Donta Bradley, 21, of Pascagoula died Thursday afternoon. Another man, whose name not being released, was also shot. Officers said his injuries are not life threatening, and they planned to question him at the hospital Friday.
