PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Jackson County District Attorney Anthony Lawrence will investigate a shooting involving Pascagoula police officers.

He was shot several times. Lawrence said a woman in the apartment was not seriously hurt. Lawrence said his office will investigate the shooting and criminal charges could be filed against Shepperd.
