SOUTHAVEN, MS - A man was shot and killed by a Southaven police officer on Monday morning. U.S. District Attorney John Champion said officers were responding to reports of a domestic assault in the area. "There were no warrants out for his arrest and at this point, it's very possible that the officers were at the wrong address," Champion said. The shooting happened just before midnight Sunday on Surrey Lane, several blocks from the intersection of Highway 51 and Nail Road. Claudia Linares and her husband, Ismael Lopez, were asleep in their bed when they heard their dogs barking and saw police cars outside. Linares said her husband opened the door and that's when police opened fire. She said she heard three shots before running outside to find her husband face down on the ground. She said her husband did not have a gun. Officers, however, shared a different series of events with the district attorney.
