Claiborne County Sheriff Frank Davis tells local news outlets that deputies are seeking 26-year-old Lydell Page, adding authorities believe he was trying to shoot the mother of his child but missed.

The four were shot Tuesday evening at a convenience store in Hermanville, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Jackson.
