    CLARKSDALE, Miss. - The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is investigating a deadly officer involved shooting in Clarksdale.

    People in the 200 block of Clark Street told me someone called police after seeing a man attempting to break in homes Saturday night.

    A person who lives on Clark says police arrived on the street and confronted a man on side of this home believed to be a prowler. 


    The man who lives in the house declined an on-camera interview but told FOX13 he heard the officer and man confront each other. 


    He says he then heard several shots. 


    Witness say the officer shot Patrick Bryant on near the back door of this home. 


    The man who lives in the house where the shooting happened told me he saw a gun not far from Bryant’s body. 


    Bryant’s family told me he worked as a security guard. 


    The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation have not released any information regarding specifics of the investigation.

    Chief Sandra Williams with Clarksdale Police plans to meet with MBI agents Monday morning, according to the MBI.
