Justice Court Judge murdered in Moss Point

A justice court judge was murdered inside her home this morning in Moss Point.

Police were called to a disturbance at 11:30 a.m. which then led to an officer-involved shooting.

Jackson County Coroner Bruce Lynd Jr. says 65-year-old Shelia Jackson Osgood, a justice court judge of district two, was found dead inside the residence this morning.

Police Chief Brandon Ashley says officers responded to Davis Street and heard gunshots.

Officers were charged by an individual with a large knife who refused to drop his weapon which caused officers to discharge their weapons killing the suspect.

Lynd Jr. identified him as Osgood’s son 45-year-old Gregory Jackson.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the homicide of Osgood. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigations is investigating the officer-involved shooting of Jackson Jr. The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave.
