Man shot in Gulfport neighborhood dies at hospital, police say

Biloxi

A man found suffering from a gunshot wound in the 13000 block of Skye Court off Three Rivers Road died Tuesday night at an area hospital, police Sgt. Joshua Bromen said.

Bromen said police responded to a report of a disturbance at 5:20 p.m. and found a man who’d been shot in a home in the Hidden Oaks neighborhood.

The man was taken to an area hospital. Bromen said Tuesday night just before 9 p.m. that the man had passed away.

Police are searching for the shooter, and Bromen said residents in the area should expect to see an increased police presence as investigators follow up on leads.

Bromen said it’s unclear if other people were there when the man was shot.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Gulfport Police Department at 228-868-5959.
