Three Oxford, Mississippi Men Arrested for Drive-By Shooting on Christmas Day
On Wednesday, December 25, 2019, at approximately 6:25 pm, officers with the Oxford Police Department were dispatched to the area of 1711 Anderson Road for shots being fired.
Upon arrival they found a male victim that stated his car was shot multiple times. The victim was able to provide a description of the vehicle which officers located later that night.
