Gluckstadt man dies charging deputies
GLUCKSTADT — A domestic dispute that began in a subdivision east of Madison Crossing Elementary School ended Saturday morning with a man being shot dead by law enforcement after he brandished a weapon and charged them at a nearby shopping center, the authorities said.
The man, Calvin Robinson, 52, later died at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, officials said.
Madison County Sheriff’s deputies were responding to the domestic call between a man and his wife in the Kemper Creek subdivision off of Yandell Road when they passed the man in his vehicle, Sheriff Randy Tucker said.
Deputies pulled him over, but he fled in the vehicle to a nearby strip shopping center on U.S. 51 where deputies were able to hem him in, but he got out brandishing a gun and charged toward officers, Tucker said.
Officers ordered the man to stop and when he did not two deputies fired and the suspect was shot, Tucker said.
“It just goes to show you that crime has no boundaries, it can happen anywhere at any time,” Tucker said.
Madison County spokesman Heath Hall confirmed Saturday that deputies shot a man that morning in Gluckstadt at the Twin Cedars shopping center.
Madison County Coroner Alex Breeland confirmed Monday that Robinson died due to a gunshot wound.
The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident, a Madison County spokesperson confirmed.
Capt. Criss Turnipseed, Public Affairs Division with MBI, said Monday that at the request of the Madison County Sherriff’s Office, MBI is investigating the officer-involved shooting.
Hall has declined to comment any further and has asked all questions be directed to MBI.
“Everything has been sent over to MBI and they are now the investigating agency,” Hall said.
