JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A man with a gunshot wound was reported, Friday morning, at an apartment complex called the Pines on Watkins Drive; but he wasn't shot there.

Jackson police say, shortly before that, a guest at a nearby Motel 6 had a run in with the man in the rear parking lot.

They say the guest was approached by a man asking for cigarettes.

The hotel guest said he didn't have any cigarettes.

The man began to walk away, when , police say, he turned around and said "I bet you don't have one of these", pointing a gun in his direction.

The guest did have "one of these," and began firing at the suspect. He reportedly hit the man at least once.

The shooting victim left and was later picked up by ambulance at the Pines apartments.  

He was hospitalized, but is not being identified at this time.

Right now the man who shot him, a contractor from the coast working in Jackson, is not being charged.  He was protected under Mississippi's castle law.

The case will still be presented to the Hinds County Jury.
