The shooting death of two Mississippi police officers Saturday night during a traffic stop in Hattiesburg prompted a statewide manhunt that led to the arrests of three suspects, according to officials.
Officer Benjamin Deen had stopped a 2000 Gold Cadillac Escalade in an industrial part of the city at around 8:30 p.m. local time Saturday, said Warren Strain, a spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. Officer Liquori Tate arrived afterward to assist him, shots were fired, and both officers were wounded.
Strain said both officers died of their injuries at a hospital. The officers’ deaths are reportedly the first for the Hattiesburg police force in 30 years.
Strain said law enforcement agencies across the state launched a manhunt for the perpetrators, leading to the arrests of three suspects: 26-year-old Curtis Banks, his 29-year-old brother Marvin Banks, and 22-year-old Joanie Calloway.
Marvin Banks and Calloway have each been charged with two counts of capital murder, and Banks' brother Curtis has been charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of capital murder.
Now ask yourself WHY cops are on edge ready to shoot!! This will not only continue but I think the illiterates that are sheep and will follow radical Islam will add to the numbers. The scum that murdered the two cops are not yet linked to ant political item as they are as of now two stupid rodents adding fuel to the fire.
