Officer Odell Fite and Investigator Brandon Breland were shot and killed after responding to a domestic disturbance call at approximately 8:00 pm. A male subject opened fire on both officers after gaining control of one of the officers' .40 caliber service weapons.

When dispatchers could not reach either officer by radio, they requested assistance from the Stone County Sheriff's Office and the Mississippi Highway Patrol. The responding units located the officers' bodies outside of the mobile home. Neither officer was wearing a bullet resistant vest at the time of the shooting.

The suspect was arrested at his home in Maxie, Mississippi, a short time later and was charged with two counts of capital murder. He was convicted and received two life sentences.

Officer Fite had served with the Wiggins Police Department for 24 years.
