Officer-Involved Shooting in Gautier
One man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Gautier on Tuesday night.
Police were responding to a domestic violence report in which a woman made a call for help from inside a residence on Home of Grace Road right off of Hastings Road. Police got to the scene around 7. After a two hour standoff, a man opened fire on police officers, resulting in a shootout and ultimately the man’s death.
The name of the 37-year-old man has not yet been released. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigations has taken over the case as they do with any officer-involved shooting.
