TISHOMINGO COUNTY (Mississippi News Now) -

Sunday Tishomingo County Sheriff John Daugherty issued the following statement about Friday's tragic and deadly standoff in Tishomingo County.

Saturday morning we got a stark reminder of the inherent dangers of a career in law enforcement. Tragically, a brother in blue was killed and three others were wounded. The names of the three wounded officers could have very easily ended up on their agency’s memorial monument in Jackson. Fortunately, all three have good prognoses and should recover. I want to extend my gratitude to all the law enforcement agencies and officers who came to assist us as we dealt with this situation. Additionally, the other emergency responders, including the medical personnel and firefighters, were critical in the efforts to ensure these officers are able to protect the citizens of Tishomingo County and all of the State of Mississippi. We pray violence and death will spare us, but reality tells us differently. If these emergency responders work together, as a team, the chances of a peaceful resolution to dangerous circumstances increases dramatically. I thank our emergency responders and the people of Tishomingo County".
