DESOTO COUNTY, MS (WMC) - Four men were shot in DeSoto County, according to Sheriff Bill Rasco.

The shooting happened at Vaiden Road and Craft Road in Hernando.

Rasco said all four men were shot in the lower part of their bodies.

Family members said the shooting started as a dispute between a woman and a former boyfriend.

The family said the ex had called her earlier in the evening, asking to come over. When she said no, he showed up and opened fire.

Seven people were inside the home, and four were shot. According to family, all four are related--two brothers and two cousins.

"I'm hurt. I'm sad. I'm hurt," family member Elizabeth Odom said. "I never thought he would do nothing like this. I mean, my brother never did nothing to him. He didn't have a right to come shoot up our house. "

Keatron Walls, 31, was arrested in connection with the shooting. Walls is charged with four counts of aggravated assault and one count of shooting into an occupied dwelling.

All four victims were taken to the hospital in Memphis.
