Sources familiar with the investigation of the murder of the two Hattiesburg police officer gave JJ an unconfirmed account of the horrific events that took place this weekend.
Officer Deen approached the vehicle. Marvin Banks was outside the car but there was a gun on the front seat. He pulled the gun out and shot Deen in the face. Deen's face is supposedly covered with residue. The source said he was "dead before he even hit the ground". Both officers were wearing bullet-proof vests. Officer Tate turned to run and get cover behind the door of his car. Banks allegedly fired at him and hit him in the back below his vest. The bullet went upward into his upper body, hit the aorta and other organs. Banks is reported to have confessed to the crime.
This is unconfirmed but as stated earlier, I am pretty confident in my sources to post this alleged account of what took place Saturday night in Hattiesburg.
