Police: Pascagoula shooting victim shot himself

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - Pascagoula police say a man who died in a shooting Thursday night accidentally shot himself. Department spokesman Doug Adams identified the victim as Seneca Evans, 27, of Gulfport.

Adams said an autopsy is taking place Friday, but the initial investigation found Seneca died of a single gunshot wound to the groin.

Around 9:15pm, police were called to Meredith Manor on Catalpa Ave. after two people reported hearing gunshots. Officers didn't find anything there, but about a block over on Agnes St. they discovered a body.
