Pearl River Solar Park Shooting – Pearl River Solar Park Shooting, Shooting At Scott County Injures 2 Two persons were injured when a fight between them led to a shooting at an energy facility in Scott County on Thursday morning. One of the victims is currently in critical condition. The Pearl River Solar Park may be found on Merchant Road just beyond the boundaries of the city of Morton.
The alleged perpetrator of the shooting has been taken into custody and is receiving medical treatment at UMMC. It appears that he was shot while he was being subdued; nevertheless, this aspect of the incident is still being investigated. According to the authorities, both of the victims of the incident were “stable.” The police are currently interviewing a number of witnesses. The incident was addressed in a statement that was issued by EDP Renewables North America, which is the parent company of Pearl River Park.
The incident was not a “disgruntled employee active shooter-type scenario,” as the authorities have stated, but rather a limited situation involving the two people who were shot. As soon as the suspect started firing, two people, both of whom had prior experience in the military, took him down and restrained him. EDP Renewables North America (EDPR NA) is troubled by the incident that occurred today at our Pearl River Solar Park, which involved individuals working for contractors, and the company’s primary focus is on ensuring that the impacted workers and other site personnel receive the help and resources they require.
