The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation issued the following statement.

On Thursday, September 05, 2019, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department responded to a hostage/kidnap situation in the 100 block of Lelia’s Drive in Madison County. After making contact with the suspect, a pursuit ensued traveling westbound on MS16. Due to public safety concerns, stop sticks were deployed in order to end the pursuit. After making contact with the stop sticks, the suspect’s vehicle left the roadway and came to rest in a ditch at the intersection of Avondale Road and MS16. Upon exiting the vehicle, the suspect immediately opened fire with multiple officers sustaining injuries. Officers returned fire striking the suspect and were able to take him into custody. The injured officers and suspect were transported to local hospitals.

Mississippi Bureau of Investigation agents along with the MBI Crime Scene Unit arrived on scene in order to conduct interviews and collect evidence regarding this ongoing investigation. All investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney’s office throughout the process for consideration and review. As is our policy, MBI does not identify officers involved in these types of incidents, and instead refers questions of that nature to the respective agency.
