Harrison County deputy cleared from criminal wrongdoing

A Harrison County Sheriff’s Deputy has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in a shooting on October 9th that left a Gulfport man injured.

According to our media partner the Sun Herald, the shooting happened after Harrison County Sheriff’s Deputies got a call from American Medical Response to respond to a home off Northup Cuevas Road.

When the responding deputies found the suspect outside his camper home, the reports say he already had what appeared to be a self-inflicted knife wound.

Deputies repeatedly told the suspect to drop the weapon, but he refused to follow the commands, resulting in Deputy Wade Wildman shooting and injuring the man.
