Southaven Police said it all began just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, March 22, 2023, when officers spotted a stolen Nissan Maxima in the area of Stateline Rd. and Horn Lake Rd. Investigators said the car entered Rasco Hills Dr. then Running Horse Cove, with an unmarked detective car trailing it.

Investigators said at that point, the detective following the stolen car did not realize a suspect had gotten out of the vehicle, and they said that suspect was in the process of stealing another vehicle. SPD said the detective got out of his car to deploy stop sticks, and the suspect who had gotten out of the vehicle began firing at him. SPD said the detective returned fire, and the suspect ran away.

Police said the Maxima took off with the other suspects inside. SPD said officers chased the Maxima into Memphis, and the suspects fired shots at the officers and were able to get away. 

Southaven Police said no officers were injured during the incident.

Anyone with any additional information is asked to contact MBI at mbitips@dps.ms.gov.

MBI is currently gathering evidence, and upon completing its investigation, will share findings with the Attorney General’s Office.
