SOUTHAVEN, MS -

(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South man is in the hospital after being shot by police.

Southaven police officials confirmed a man was shot after he would not surrender his weapon to police. Investigators said the man was trying to shoot his girlfriend.

Hours after her boyfriend was shot, the woman involved in the incident was escorted back to her apartment by police. She and other relatives picked up belongings and covered themselves with blankets as they walked into apartment 8.

One neighbor, who did not wish to give her name, said the woman was incredibly upset.

"She was just hysterical," stated the resident.

She continued to describe the tense moments hours earlier when the woman's 15-year-old daughter ran to her apartment crying.

"The boyfriend went upstairs and he come down. He had the gun and her mama called the police. When the police got there, she said he was choking her mom and had a gun in his hand," explained the neighbor.

Officers from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation were also on the scene and are looking into what happened.
