New Albany, Miss., football coach’s wife killed in shooting

New Albany Police Chief David Grisham says the shooting happened just before 10 p.m. Monday.

Grisham says it appears Amanda Price may have gone outside with their dog and startled someone in the backyard. She began to scream and was shot.

Grisham says coach Ron Price, who was inside the house, was shot while responding to his wife’s screams. Price was treated and released Monday night from North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. The couple’s daughter who was inside the house was not hurt.

Grisham said there weren’t any suspects in the shooting.

Ron Price had recently completed his fourth season as head coach.
