JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A former federal prosecutor’s Mississippi home was riddled with bullets during a drive-by shooting last week, authorities said.
Someone fired upon U.S. Attorney Greg Davis’ home on Thanksgiving night in the Woodlea subdivision of Jackson, WLBT-TV reported. The upstairs window was later boarded up and officers were posted on the street near the house.
Video from a nearby doorbell camera shows a vehicle speeding into the neighborhood and stopping in front of Davis’ house as numerous shots are heard, the television station reported. When the shooting finally stops, the vehicle speeds away.
No one was in the home at the time and there are no reports of injuries.
Police Chief James Davis confirmed that authorities are investigating but he declined to give further details, saying he doesn’t want to jeopardize any leads. Sheriff Lee Vance confirmed his department is assisting in patrolling the area.
President Barack Obama nominated Davis to the U.S. attorney’s post, where he served the Southern District of Mississippi from 2012 to 2017.
