Off-duty MPD officer shoots would-be burglar in Southaven
A attempted home invasion during which a homeowner shoots the suspect would have made a story in any event.. Especially in Southaven, MS. But this one also involved an off-duty Memphis Police officer. He was home tending to his two young children when Southaven Police said a man kicked in the back door. I interviewed a number of neighbors who said they would have done the same thing to protect their families. One neighbor even showed me the gun he had strapped to his hip. It is still rather vague as to if this officer violates MPD's residency requirement which states officers hired since 2005 must live in Shelby County, TN.
