JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - A Lowndes County grand jury decided not to indict officers involved in the fatal shooting of a man on Highway 82 near Columbus last year.
The Mississippi attorney general's office says it presented the case in July and confirmed the grand jury's decision in the shooting death of Pryor Spencer Bailey, 45, of Starkville.
Bailey was shot and killed March 27 more than a mile east of the Highway 50 exit after a chase that started in Mathiston when an officer tried to pull over Bailey's sport utility vehicle.
The chase by law enforcement went through Oktibbeha County and ended in Lowndes County when the SUV hit spike strips.
According to deputies, Bailey got out of the SUV shooting two handguns with one of the bullets wounding Lowndes County Deputy Kevin Forrester.
Officers returned fire, and Bailey was killed.
The attorney general's office did not rule out the case being presented to another grand jury.
