Two Gulfport police officers have been cleared of any wrong doing in connection with a deadly shooting in June. A Harrison County Grand Jury reports "no criminal conduct was involved in this matter."

According to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, Frank James Rhodes, 61, was standing outside on the driveway of his stepsister's house on Holliman Circle when officers responded to a call of shots fired in the area on June 13th. MBI officials say Rhodes fired shots at the white officers and that's when one of the officers returned fire.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said Rhodes was shot four times, and died on the scene from a gun shot to the head.
