BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. – A longtime veterinarian and mother has been identified as the woman who shot and killed two police officers in Mississippi on Wednesday, according to local reports.
Amy Anderson, 43, of Ocean Springs, Mississippi, was sitting in a parked SUV with a female child younger than 10 years old when the officers were sent to the parking lot of a Motel 6 in Bay St. Louis around 4:30 a.m. on a welfare check, the Mississippi Department of Public Safety said in a statement.
Bay St. Louis Police Sgt. Steven Robin and officer Branden Estorffe spoke to Anderson for nearly a half-hour before she fired at them while sitting in the vehicle, investigators said. During the conversation, the officers called for Child Protection Services, the police statement said.
Robin, 34, died in the parking lot. Estorffe, 23, died a short time later at the hospital, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation agents said.
Additional officers who rushed to the scene found Anderson dead from a gunshot wound to the chest. An earlier statement said the woman shot herself, but investigators have since learned that one of the officers fired his weapon during the shooting. An autopsy will determine whether she committed suicide, according to The Mississippi Press.
It was still unclear what happened to the girl inside the SUV.
