Death – Obituary

A 35-year-old man was shot and killed after forcing open a door to the apartment of a woman he had had a past relationship with, Biloxi police said Thursday afternoon.

Police said they don’t expect to arrest anyone and won’t release the names of anyone involved unless an arrest is made.

According to the police, at 11 p.m. on Wednesday, a 911 caller reported hearing a gunshot and seeing an unresponsive man on the ground outside an apartment complex in the 200 block of McDonnell Avenue.

Biloxi police and fire personnel responded and found the 35-year-old man dead at the scene.

“The preliminary investigation indicated that the male parked at a neighboring apartment complex and walked to the apartment of a female with whom he had a past relationship,” the press release said. “Multiple people were inside the apartment with the female and the male was shot after forcing open an exterior door to gain entry.”

The press release said investigators are still collecting information but that “an arrest is not expected at this time.”

“Once the investigation is completed, it will be forwarded to the Harrison County District Attorney’s Office for consideration by the Grand Jury,” the press release said.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
