Sunday night’s shooting ended with the gunman being shot by police.

WTVA News reports that Mississippi Bureau of Investigations spokesperson, Warren Strain, tells them that 34-year-old Howard Brent Means, Jr., from Tishomingo was firing at police when he was shot and killed around 6 p.m.

The officer hurt in the shootout was taken to a local hospital for treatment then released. A crime scene is reportedly being set up to conduct a full investigation. An autopsy of Means will be done in Jackson…

A friend of Means, Sheena Burton, said she and his father wanted to talk him into giving up his gun, but they were denied by police. She describes Means as someone who wanted everyone to get along and isn’t sure why he flipped the way he did. He’d been sober for several months and talked about his progress on Facebook. The gunman was a father to three kids, worked as a logger, and enjoyed race cars.
