Board rejects Desoto County training facility

DESOTO COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Desoto County supervisors have rejected a zoning board's recommendation to allow a police tactical training facility near a residential area.

The board voted Wednesday to approve the conditional use of a 7.5 acre site leased by      Horn Lake-based Tactical Energetic Entry Systems or TEES.

Residents were concerned about the noise.

Before the vote, TEES owner Alan Brosnan said there would be no pistol or rifle shooting and that the closest resident lives a mile away.
