Coast authorities are investigating the weekend deaths of a child in Biloxi and a man in Moss point. Early Sunday, police in Moss Point responded to a call that shots had been fired in a motel room at the Executive Inn on U.S. 90. Timothy Dickerson, 25, of Pascagoula, was found with one gunshot wound to the chest, said John Kinsey, Jackson County chief deputy coroner. Dickerson later died at Singing River Hospital.
``We talked to some witnesses who said they heard the shot but didn't see anything,'' said Lt. Jim Roe of the Moss Point Police Department. ``It's all very sketchy. He was shot inside a room, but I don't know if the room was registered in his name.'' No arrests have been made in Dickerson's death, officers said.
