Detective Eric Smith, one of Jackson’s top homicide detectives, leaves behind a wife and two sons. He was shot dead inside Jackson Police Headquarters.

This is Chief Rebecca Coleman:

(Coleman) “Upon our arrival, we found the suspect is deceased and we have a police officer that’s deceased.”

Cops aren’t saying too much beyond that beyond identifying the probable shooter as stabbing suspect, 23-year-old Jeremy Powell, who was picked up earlier in the day and was being interviewed. 

The state investigative team has now taken over.
