Wednesday night gunfire left two people hurt, including a police officer and a man holed up inside a house in Mississippi, according to authorities. According to the Jones County Sheriff’s Department, the man inside the residence had critical injuries, but the Jones County deputy received treatment and was later discharged from the hospital.
According to Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin, Deputy Joey Davis visited the Ellisville residence at 6 p.m. on Wednesday after a mother had contacted the police to report a problem with her son.
As they were talking, the man shot Davis. According to the investigations, the individual barricaded himself inside the house while the cop managed to escape.
Before finally giving himself up, the individual was shot multiple times, according to the officials. The man’s identity has not been made public by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation as it looks into the shootings.
