A Mississippi grand jury has cleared police officers of any wrongdoing concerning a 2021 officer-involved shooting in Gulfport.
On Feb. 11, 2021, Jonathan Dion Turner died as a result of injuries from a shooting on David Street in Gulfport.
Police were called shortly before 2 a.m. to a domestic dispute. When they arrived at the scene the incident quickly turned into a hostage situation.
Officers reportedly tried to engage in dialogue with Turner.
On Monday, the Harrison County grand jury issues a report saying they found no criminal conduct on behalf of officers involved in the shooting.
