A woman who told police she accidentally shot herself at a Valley View Drive residence early Thursday morning actually shot herself on Deemer Road in the county, the authorities said.
"It was first reported that it happened in the city but later we learned that it happened on Deemer Road," said Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell.
The woman, who remained in a Meridian hospital on Tuesday, was shot one time in the lower stomach, he said.
Sheriff's Investigator Ralph Sciple said his investigation determined that the woman shot herself accidentally.
Police Chief Grant Myers said the woman was taken to Neshoba County General Hospital by private vehicle and later taken to a Meridian hospital.
