One Man Dead, His Wife in Custody

A Jackson County man is dead and deputies have a woman in custody after a shooting this afternoon.
According to Sheriff Mike Ezell, deputies responded to a call on O’Neal Road in North Jackson County around 3:30 p.m. Deputies arrived to find the man, who Sheriff Ezell confirms was a Biloxi firefighter, dead.
The sheriff’s department now has his wife in custody and a preliminary investigation is underway. Sheriff Ezell says the wife is cooperating with officials.
Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Chief Investigator Curtis Spiers said, “We’re in the middle of the investigation literally as we speak. We need to interview witnesses, we need to interview all parties involved. We still got family notifications to do. So, at this point, we still can’t release the names. We expect possibly by tomorrow morning we can.”
