Investigator Brandon Breland and Officer Odell Fite 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 their .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 their 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 of both counts of capital murder.

Investigator Breland had served with the Wiggins Police Department for 5 years.
