A Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics agent and a Biloxi police officer are recovering after being shot at a home Tuesday night.
Police say shortly before seven, the two officers, who are part of the Narcotics Task Force, were serving a warrant at home on Big John Road in Harrison County. As the two men walked up to the house, police say they encountered some sort of booby trap with a shotgun rigged up. When the two officers tripped it, the gun went off, shooting them both.
The MBN agent, who was a Waveland police officer on loan to the state narcotics task force, was shot in the leg. The Biloxi officer received only superficial wounds. The officers were not identified.
