A Jackson, Mississippi homicide detective and a murder suspect are both dead after an incident at police headquarters.
Chris Davis with FOX News Radio affiliate WFMN in Jackson, Mississippi has details:
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.
