Police have released the identity of the man whom they say was shot after trying to force his way into a Pascagoula home on Monday morning.
Police Capt. Shannon Massey said Jerry Lee Lyons Jr., 34, of Moss Point, died at Singing River Hospital after being shot multiple times at a home in the 2800 block of Martin Street.
Lyons attempted to force his way inside a home in a domestic-related incident, according to police.
“Several people were in the house when it happened,” Massey said.
Pascagoula police and fire units responded to a complaint of shots fired in a home about 8:36 a.m. They found a wounded man on the floor.
“Emergency responders began working on him,” Massey said. “We began working on the individual and stabilizing the scene.”
Acadian Ambulance took the man to Singing River Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police cordoned off the yard with yellow tape and crime-scene technicians went in to collect evidence. Investigators questioned those who were in the home and believe they have identified the shooter, Massey said.
The case remains under investigation and will be presented at the next grand jury, Massey said.
