TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus elephant was hit by a bullet in a drive-by shooting Tuesday in Tupelo.

Circus spokeswoman Melinda Hartline says the elephant was not seriously hurt. She says no other animals were harmed.

The elephant is part of the circus that is in town for a series of performances. The elephant was in an area outside where the circus keeps animals at the BancorpSouth Arena.

Police Chief Tony Carleton says a vehicle drove past the arena about 2 a.m. and fired into the area where the animals are kept. He says an investigation is underway.
