Good day, people of Jackson! It's me again, Kayla Harrison, your host of the Jackson Daily.

First, today's weather:

Sunny to partly cloudy. High: 46 Low: 26.

Here are the top three stories today in Jackson:

  1. Councilman Grizzell is calling for state help after stray bullets hit two seniors’ homes in Jackson. Grizzell said one woman was almost shot by a stray bullet as she was leaving a bathroom in her home. Another woman said a bullet landed on her front door. (WJTV)

  2. The city of Jackson is getting ready for freezing weather after storms. They are urging residents to do the same, to prepare and be on alert for any changes in weather. They are attempting to be as prepared as possible, especially after the water crisis that occurred last year. (WLBT)

  3. Jackson police are investigating an armed robbery of a business on Clinton Blvd. The suspect was a Black male who was wearing white pants and a red hoodie. He held up a gun and took cash from the drawer, though the amount taken is unknown. (WAPT Jackson)
