BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (WJTV) – Authorities said two Bay St. Louis police officers were killed during an officer-involved shooting.
The shooting happened around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, December 14 at the Motel 6 on Highway 90.
According to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI), the officers responded to the scene after receiving a call for service. When they arrived, they encountered a woman, who was sitting in a parked vehicle with a minor female.
During the interaction with the woman, the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services was called.
MBI officials said the woman, 43-year-old Amy Anderson, then fatally shot one officer and injured another before she killed herself. Investigators said the second officer later died from his injuries.
The officers were identified as Sgt. Steven Robin, 34, and Officer Brandon Estorffe, 23.
“I am heartbroken by this terrible loss of two brave law enforcement officers. I am praying for their family, friends, their fellow officers, and the entire Bay St. Louis community,” said Governor Tate Reeves (R-Miss.).
“A tragedy occurred here today in the city of Bay St. Louis as two of our finest officers’ lives were
taken,” said Bay St. Louis Police Chief Toby Schwartz. “We are gathering facts and will ensure a
thorough investigation into this matter.”
Once MBI agents complete their investigation, they will share their findings with the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office.
