While responding to the call, officers got another car burglary call on the other side of the apartment complex.

One of the men ran while the other pulled a 9 mm pistol and pointed it at one of the officers. Vance said the officer shot the man, who later died at the University Mississippi Medical Center. Police have not released the name of the man nor have they identified the officer.

Good job! Dumb shit won't do THAT again and I bet his buddy is thinking twice about burglary as a career. Much better than incarceration and a 0% recidivism rate.
Hope the officer gets through everything quickly and gets back to work, soon.

Glad the officer was quicker on the draw........SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
