After Mississippi Killings, Man Questioned Following Apparent Fake-Cop Highway Stops


Gold Crown Victoria

In the fatal shootings, authorities suspected the shooter may be pretending to be a cop because the perpetrator may have been driving a gold, unmarked Crown Victoria sedan, which can resemble a police car.

Tate County Sheriff Brad Lance said the search for the gold car stemmed from an incident in Tate County on April 2 when a woman was pulled over during the day by a gold sedan with flashing lights.

The car did not have blue lights, but had alternating headlamps and other lights.

The man who approached her car was dressed in pants and an untucked plaid shirt, according to the sheriff.

The woman was suspicious and only lowered her window a crack.

She told the man her license was in the trunk and she was not getting out of the car. When the woman demanded to see his badge and ID, he became agitated and fled.
