MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

A 28-year-old man is recovering in the hospital after an overnight shooting in Moss Point. Police Chief Calvin Hutchins said the victim was shot inside his home on Tela Dr. The victim's condition has been upgraded to stable, and we're told he can now speak with investigators.

Hutchins said the shooting was reported around 11:30 p.m. Monday. Responding officers found the victim suffering from a single gunshot wound to his pelvis.

According to the chief, witnesses said a masked man shot and robbed the victim.

The victim's grandmother tells WLOX New Now she was home when the robbery happened, and she got a good look at the suspect. The woman said the suspect threatened to shoot her too, and he ran off when she went to grab a gun of her own.

Hutchins said the shooting remains under investigation, and police have not established a motive. It's unclear if drugs or money made the victim a target, Hutchins said, but investigators believe the shooter and victim knew each other. Police have not named a suspect.

Hutchins did say he's pretty sure this is an isolated incident, and it's unlikely there's a masked man targeting people at random.

If you have any information that could help police solve this crime, please call the Moss Point Police Department at 228-475-1711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
