The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is looking into a shooting involving an off-duty officer in Tunica County.

A release from the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department says that a call came in on Monday night from a motorist who said there had been a shooting in a vehicle on US Highway 61 South in Dundee.

When deputies arrived on the scene, Porshia Robinson, 24, of Rolling Fork, was on scene. Police say she had a domestic dispute and was assaulted by her brother, 27-year-old Javonta Marshall of Southaven.

Upon arrival, deputies found Marshall in the back seat of the vehicle, unresponsive with a single gunshot wound. Paramedics were called but Marshall was beyond help and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Another man in the vehicle was identified as an off-duty police officer. Both the off-duty police officer and sister of the victim were taken to the Sheriff’s Office and released by MBI. It is routine for MBI to investigate officer-involved shootings.

This case is active and ongoing, according to deputies.
