BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — Police in Mississippi are looking for a gunman who approached a uniformed officer outside a Biloxi police station and shot him dead.

Authorities say the man walked up to the Biloxi officer in the station’s parking lot Sunday night, shot him multiple times and then ran off.

Firefighters rushed the officer to a hospital emergency room down the street, where he was pronounced dead.

Chief Leonard Papania of the Gulfport Police Department is leading the investigation, along with the Harrison County sheriff and prosecutors’ offices.

Authorities released images showing the suspect wearing navy blue shorts, a black T-shirt, a red beanie cap and dark high top sneakers with red caps.

The slain officer has not been publicly identified.

A law enforcement helicopter has been flying over Biloxi as officers search the area.

    I’m not anti cop but I am anti COON Cop Defender. And as far as the criminal element the thugs in blue are the criminal element they just have a badge to do it legally. How many innocent unarmed black people have been shot by no fault of their own even when complying, shot in the back, your cellphone look like a gun, shot over a minor traffic violation, 12 year old killed because a cop was too stupid, salvage to resolve a situation without assassinating a child. No I’m not crying over a dead cop, welcome to the real world.

    And people wonder why cops don’t play when it comes the criminal element. These kind of incidents are part of the reason. I know if it’s between me and some criminal with a weapon; I’d gladly try and take them out. The ones who are so anti-cop are tbe first ones calling when they are in trouble.

    Well, well well so the tables have turned huh? Maybe the shooter feared for his life, felt threatened, maybe the officer pulled his gun first. Maybe the officer was dealing drugs or taking drug money. Maybe the shooter was some innocent person the officer may have arrested, lied on, framed up or brutalized. Maybe this story is a coverup for what really happened because if the boy in blue hands are dirty they’ll never release that information to the public…On behalf of all unarmed murdered citizens who’ve gotten no justice I hope the shooter is never found.

      Passing Through – yep. This organized gang deserves the disdain. Another gang member was gunned down in Mooresville NC this week. Since citizens don’t know if they can survive interaction with these devils – well this is what you get. No Respect!
