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.

11 years today. Although time has went by rather quickly, it all still feels like yesterday. I sure miss your smile and laugh a lot! This old world is getting worse by the day, with our LEO's being targeted almost daily. This is no pain that anyone should have to hold. I love and miss you more than anyone could imagine. Fly high and take care of our baby boy. Until we meet again. ❤
