North Jackson County Shooting

A Greenwood man was hospitalized late Sunday night after he was shot while answering a knock at his front door.

David Benton, who lives on Wintergreen Road in Greenwood, told Jackson County sheriff’s deputies two men knocked on the door and when he opened it one of them fired three shots.

He was struck once in the leg.

The duo then fled down the street where they jumped into a waiting car.

Benton is hospitalized at Jackson Hospital in Marianna in stable condition.
