JACKSON, Miss. (AP) A murder suspect being interviewed at the Jackson, Miss., police headquarters shot a detective Thursday and those who came to investigate the gunfire found both men dead, authorities said.
The suspect, who was not identified, was being questioned on the third floor of the building when the shooting happened, said Police Chief Rebecca Coleman. Police did not release any details on the sequence of what happened but scheduled a news conference for later Thursday night.
The officer was identified as Eric Smith, a homicide detective.
Jackson City Councilman Chokwe Lumumba was in police headquarters with the mayor and said Smith was shot by the suspect. He did not know how the suspect ended up dead.
"I understand there may have been more than one police officer in the room," Lumumba said outside the police building.

An Affirmative action homicide?
sure wish we'da picked our own damned cotton
I know. Hate to hear that. Inside job of some sort sounds like. MBI already in charge of investigation IIRC?
Sounds like he was a really nice guy. WLBT reporter was broken up over it.
You’re right: MBI already in charge, Praise God! Sounds awful. Did the murderer grab the detective’s gun or was he slipped another gun?
Yes, sounds like Eric Smith was a very nice guy and a dedicated detective.
Detective Smith is black. RIP.
This might not help his case on the original charge.
It's worst than you think!
Rip Det. Smith. One of the good guys.

that must mean ecru power ?
Shyster has some serious negro taquiyah goin' on, by the sound of it.
Our Capitol has been Mogadishu for years... and it is one of the most unsafe cities in the world. It is a HATE CRIME to even hint at the cause... but we all know the truth.
GOD rest the soul of the Detective and damn the soul of the perp and ALL like him.
Obvious question. Do detectives norm ally question a suspect in an interview room while still wearing their firearms. Isn’t it pretty standard procedure in most departments that weapons are secured before entering an interrogation room with prisoners?
I won’t go into Jackson for the very reasons you cited.
You are a very smart lady!
