MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An officer-involved shooting in Horn Lake, Mississippi left one man injured on Wednesday.
The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is investigating the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department regarding an officer-involved shooting.
The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. near the post office on Goodman Road in Horn Lake.
According to the Desoto County Sheriff’s Department, a deputy shot an armed suspect in the leg during a traffic stop.
An anonymous witness says she watched the deputy trail the suspect into the parking lot just moments before a shot was fired.
According to the witness, there was only one gunshot.
The sheriff’s department says the suspect is expected to be ok, and the officer has been relieved of duty pending the outcome of the investigation.
The Desoto County Sheriff’s Department isn’t the only law enforcement agency in the county under investigation by the MBI.
Exactly four weeks ago, a woman was shot and killed by Horn Lake police officers, also on Goodman Road. Police say she pointed a gun at officers after leading them on a chase.
Four officers in that shooting are also on administrative duty.
At this time, the sheriff’s department nor the MBI have released the identity of the suspect or the charges they may face.
