Mississippi: A Hattiesburg police officer shot and killed a man early today after being held at gunpoint himself. “A struggle ensued,” Wynn said. “The officer was able to break away and fired a round. The officer was very fortunate. The officer used his training very well. He talked to the subject when he had a gun to his head.” (A prime example of “it ain’t over till it’s over”) http://www.hattiesburgamerican.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060307/NEWS01/60308001
