A man is in the intensive care unit at Ocean Springs Hospital after being shot by Jackson County deputies last night.
Deputies responded to a call of an armed man on Sugar Gate Drive shortly after 11 p.m. and were met by 47-year-old William Thompson who was armed with a handgun.
Sheriff Mike Ezell says deputies tried to calm Thompson and ordered him to drop the gun before shooting.
The sheriff says an officer safety alert was issued at the address after deputies responded multiple times to the residence over the last week and Thompson made threats against them.
Two deputies are on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.
