Tupelo – Columbus

TUPELO, Mississippi – WTVA reports Tupelo police have released the name of the man accused of shooting someone in the parking lot of the BancorpSouth Arena following Friday night’s Jason Aldean concert. This happened almost a month after the massacre at the Las Vegas Aldean concert during the Route 91 Festival.

Steven Michael Hulbert, 22, of Walls, is charged with aggravated assault and is being held in the Lee County jail. He will make his initial court appearance Monday.

The man shot in the chest, whose name is being withheld, was released from North Mississippi Medical Center Saturday morning.

According to police, the shooting on the west side of the music venue appears to be a dispute between the two men.

Bancorpsouth Arena Director Todd Hunt said once staff heard shots fired they directed those leaving the building to shelter in place until the all clear was given.
