NATCHEZ — The Adams County Sheriff’s Office is investigating shots fired Wednesday night in the area of Gaylor Road.

Adams County Sheriff Travis Patten said two houses were hit in the 100 block of Gaylor Road at approximately 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

“No one was hit and no one was hurt in the incident,” Patten said. “It is currently still under investigation right now. We have some persons of interest that we are actively searching for.”
