Officer Glen Agee was shot and killed by a fleeing prisoner.
He and another officer had arrested the man for aggravated assault and domestic violence and were transporting the him to the Hinds County Detention Center. During the transport the prisoner complained that he was having trouble breathing and the officers lowered the window in the patrol car.
Despite being handcuffed behind the back and belted in, the man was able to escape from the patrol car when it stopped at a red light. He fled into the woods with both officers in pursuit.
Several agencies and a helicopter joined in the search and located the suspect approximately 45 minutes later. Officer Agee was found a short time later suffering two gunshot wounds to his face.
Officer Agee had served with the Jackson Police Department for only two months and had previously served with the Jackson State University Police Department.
Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Thursday at Westhaven Memorial Funeral Home at 3580 Robinson St.
The funeral is planned for Friday at 10 a.m. at the Jackson State University Attendance Center, with internment to follow at Old Hopewell Church Cemetery near Collins.
