Mayor Kenny Holloway Releases Statement Regarding Downtown Shooting

Ocean Springs Mississippi

The City of Ocean Springs is a vibrant community with one of the best downtowns in the entire state and the region. Our city and community thrive on small business owners' success. Our downtown continues to be a tourist destination with a popular entertainment district. With this attractiveness, our city leaders have high standards for all of our small businesses.

The shooting on Friday, May 5, in downtown, has been a terrible disruption to our community. The senseless act of violence has shaken our small town and has shown a disregard for others' safety, not only in our downtown district but throughout our city. This was not a random act of violence but it was an intentional attack.

We will not allow those who have no respect for our standards to disrupt our city's brand, reputation, and above all, our quality of life. A safe life. We have zero tolerance for violence and we do not allow this type of behavior from any business owner, visitor, or resident. We will exhaust all resources to keep our streets safe for everyone.

Our public safety officers work tirelessly and diligently to keep our beautiful city secure. Ocean Springs is strong, resilient, and safe.
