JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Police say a man has been shot and killed during an altercation stemming from a street race.

Jackson Police Department spokeswoman Colendula Green tells local media that 19-year-old Christopher Silas was killed early Saturday morning near Interstate 55 in north Jackson.

Authorities say officers were fired upon later that day by an unknown assailant while police were arresting 20-year-old Deion Hicks in connection to Silas’ death. Hicks was struck twice in the chest and was listed in stable condition. No officers were injured.

Green says Hicks will be charged upon his release from the hospital. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
