The 7 Chilling Words a Mississippi Police Officer Said Before Dying from Fatal Gunshot Wound

Details surrounding the deaths of two Hattiesburg, Mississippi police officers are continuing to surface Sunday, following Saturday evening’s shooting.

According to IJReview, one of the officers asked a bystander if he was going to die, and he replied:

“Am I dying? I know I’m dying…”

The Associated Press reported that a witness heard one of the officers say these words:

Hattiesburg resident Tamika Mills was quoted by The Clarion-Ledger as saying some bystanders came upon the officers on the ground, and that one of the officers asked “… ‘Am I dying? I know I’m dying. Just hand me my walkie-talkie,’” Mills told the paper.

The Clarion-Ledger reports that Hattiesburg residents Tamika Mills and Pearnell Roberts were the two bystanders who discovered the wounded officers.

Mills told the Clarion-Ledger about what she saw:

“Never in my life have I experienced or seen anything like this except on TV, and to be in the midst of it, it’s shocking and heartbreaking.

As we were coming down Fourth Street, we noticed a bunch of lights. As we came on through, (Roberts) told me to turn around because she saw somebody laying on the ground.

So I backed up. That’s when we noticed the officer was down. We just saw that one, but in the course of me being on the phone with 9-1-1, I turned and I saw another officer across the street rolling on the ground. (Roberts) ran across the street to check on him. He wasn’t all the way alert but he asked her, ‘Am I dying? I know I’m dying. Just hand me my walkie-talkie.’”

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, a former law enforcement officer, gave a brief statement Sunday morning after learning about the officer’s deaths:

“Deborah and I join all Mississippians this morning in mourning the death of our two police officers in Hattiesburg. This should remind us to thank all law enforcement for their unwavering service to protect and serve. May God keep them all in the hollow of his hand.”

The murders were the first on police officers in the Mississippi town since New Year’s Eve 1984.

All three suspects are currently in custody, two of which are facing capital murder charges, and another who is facing an accessory charge. They will each see a judge on Monday for their initial court appearance.

The two officers slain in the shootings were memorialized on Twitter:

Rest in peace and may God bless their families and the police community.

    This targeting of police has to stop! Kids now days are not taught basic respect for anything, of authorities, elders, parents, property, etc. I always taught my boys to respect the authority of the police. I told them they could challenge later in court, but to respect and do what the authorities said to do!

    • Ricky Lee White

      And today the police have no respect for our rights, our property or our lives. In the Police academies they are teaching police to abuse our rights and to escalate violence against us.

      Sometimes karma is a real bitch.

        Your anger is misplaced, The Police do NOT write the laws, but it is their responsibility to enforce them, whether they agree with them or not. If you don’t want police being so involved in your life, that’s fine, vote for someone who will quit passing unneeded or stupid laws. But quit blaming the Officer who puts his life on the line daily to protect you and me and vote those big government statist of of office who create these laws in the first place that are infringing on our lives.

        Ricky… Police don’t make the laws, they are only trying to enforce the laws that are in place.. that is all they can do.. So many people to day walk around with huge chips on their shoulders.. lots of them place blame on others because of bad decisions they have made in their own lives or because of their circumstances…but you are the master of your own fate.. want a better job then go get it, you don’t like your circumstance.. then get out of them… no one owes you a living or anything else. It is up to them to create the life they want. Our laws are outdated and trying to get new ones passed is a joke. It takes forever, they attach so much garbage to those bills being passed that most of them fall by the wayside… If people want a better life then they only need to look in the mirror, that is the only person that can help them…Drugs and gangs are not the way out unless you are looking for a quick pass the hereafter.

    • Ricky Lee White

      I forgot, who has the money to challenge what police do to us in court? Do you have any idea what attorneys charge these days? Very few Americans can afford a court battle against government entities that essentially have unlimited funds to defend themselves with.

      • AZTom

        So a funeral is cheaper?

      • libsmakemelaugh

        Don’t you mooches get a free lawyer? Yes. You do. Stfu, moron

      • Dolores Makara

        The next time you need help call a thug instead of 911. No police officer should lose his or her life for someone like you.

      • madalon baum

        Legal aid will help you if you have an issue and no $$, but I’m sure you have an excuse and an intelligent remark to make about that, too.

      • Linda Delp Jones Powers

        Stay out of trouble and OBEY the laws, pull up your pants and you just might need a lawyer idiot

      • kkayb

        A lot of Attorneys now day don’t get paid unless you win… sounds fair… but they won’t know what an Attorney can do for them if they don’t go check it out… most consults are free..

    • kkayb

      Dee… well said.. there is no respect these days… I taught my kids the same values.. It seems we are in a world where values is a rare thing.. there is no shame in being poor.. my parents didn’t have lot.. but we had respect and values.

    Very sad day! Prayers to the family and the force!

    Reminds me of a cartoon I saw from the 70s. A mom was giving a lunch bag to her child sending him off to school as she says, “and don’t take any crap from those teachers…”

    Police, as a matter of justice, need to be obeyed FIRST. Not because they are right or wrong, but because they are in a legitimate position of authority.

    • Ricky Lee White

      What happens when the police give illegal orders? A common one is police telling you to stop filming their actions. We have every right (backed up by the Supreme Court, a higher authority than the police) to film the police in public and yet police try to stop us from performing a perfectly legal activity. And that is just one example of the police overstepping the bounds of their authority.

      • AZTom

        Tell us Ricky, did you vote for Obama and Democrats?

        • adobong_paksiw

          I guess he did. And another guess I make is that he grew up with the kind of conversation around the dinner table that foments hatred of authority, that tells him the “whites and the pigs” must pay somehow, that it is okay to resist authority as long as he thinks he is on the right, that if in his perception his rights have been stepped on, then he must do what he must do to assert his rights, even gunning down cops. The kind of dinner table conversation where he hears laughter at the death of cops, the “good for them’s”.
          And I guess that’s the kind of conversation his kids hear, or will hear.
          miserable.
          how you grew up, raised, and the subjects you hear at home, shapes you somewhow for the future.

      • Squabbles

        It’s not illegal for them to tell you to stop filming.
        I’d suggest if you are ever confronted by police to resist to the fullest, never give up. We’re counting on you to break the cycle.

      • Prettylady!

        God gravey, I never thought about that. Did you pursue legal recourse?

      • Carolyn Sells Smith

        stupid runs deep !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Herman Vogel

    THIS is what is wrong in the Black Community,,,NOT the cops. If not for criminals and criminal backgrounds these young men would still be alive and well as would ANY of the Black men that have died while dealing with the police of late. From the President down this was a planned execution of GOOD men. It is time the American people woke up and demand they Impeach him and his WHOLE cabinet.

  • Joe Tokoph

    ALL YOU GHETTO RATS ARE THE ISSUE, THE ONES THAT WONT GO TO SCHOOL AND STEAL FROM PEOPLE ANY CHANCE YOU GET. THE POLICE ARE NOT OUT OF CONTROL, SOCIETY IS OUT OF CONTROL!

  • Ed Woodson

    Obama, of course, will make the perfunctory comment about this. I do sincerely believe that he cares nothing about any of those who serve as Policemen.

    • Megamimi

      Perhaps perfunctory is too generous a term, setting too high a standard given previous instances.

    • Not Anonymous

      What do you expect, he was raised as a socialist/communist/Muslim as a teen and young adult.

  • Not Anonymous

    This is the result you get when you have a piece of garbage president who glorifies criminals and deifies law abiding officers. I only hope we can make it through the last part of this fraud’s days as president.
