If you're in Jackson tonight and you hear gunfire, don't worry.
It's not the sound of voter-ID proponents celebrating the http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2013/jun/25/miss-voter-id-balance-scotus-guts-voting-rights-ac/">dismantling of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
It's not the beginnings of the Republic of New Afrika's armed insurrection.
It's just members of the Jackson Police Department shooting guns. http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/22683018/jpd">JPD will be testing new equipment that detects gunfire, WLBT reports.
The technology, called The Shot Spotter, senses whenever a gun is fired and notifies emergency personnel, who will respond to the shot.
Officers will test the system tonight at 7 p.m. with live rounds, but will not fire bullets into the air. Even if the system works, JPD encourages residents to continue reporting gunshots in their neighborhoods.
