Man charged in shooting of 2 at Mississippi Waffle House

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - A man has been charged in connection with the shooting of two people in a Waffle House parking lot in Mississippi.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2tmeugR ) 24-year-old Nicholas Pack, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault Tuesday in connection with Sunday's shooting. One victim was shot four times and is on life support. Tupelo Deputy Police Chief Allan Gilbert described the second victim, who was shot once, as an innocent bystander.

Police say an altercation began inside the restaurant. Police say Pack fired at least five times before fleeing the scene. Pack has not revealed a reason for the altercation.

A judge set Pack's bail at $3 million. Charges could be upgraded if one of the victims doesn't survive.

It's unclear if Pack has a lawyer.
