Investigation into shooting death of three-month-old heading to grand jury
The investigation into the shooting death of three-month old La’Mello Parker is heading to a grand jury.
Biloxi police officials confirmed the completion of their investigation and turned the evidence over to the Harrison County District Attorney’s Office.
A grand jury will determine if there was any wrongdoing.
Parker was shot and killed in May of 2021, following a police pursuit on I-10 involving his father that ended in an exchange of gunfire with Mississippi law enforcement.
Police say it could take some time for the grand jury to review the evidence and come to a decision.
Biloxi police took over the investigation because officers from the Mississippi Highway Patrol, Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, and Gulfport Police Department were involved in the shooting.
