Fatal Incident Summary

Summary: Chief Anthony Lucas died after being struck by a shotgun blast at approximately 2015 hours.

Chief Lucas, along with other officers, ended a brief pursuit at a residence on Whites Road, in Weir, where the chief, who was assisting Ackerman Police, was killed.

He was the part-time police chief in French Camp, and had joined other Choctaw County officers in the pursuit of a car that had fled during a traffic stop. The fleeing car stopped at a house in Weir and the four juveniles inside the car jumped out, with three running inside the house and one running down the road. As the chief walked toward the house, a 16-year-old male came out and shot him with a shotgun.

On August 31, 2005, the suspect was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Chief Lucas served as the part-time police chief of the French Camp Police Department for 2 years and also served as a full time parole and probation officer for the Mississippi Department of Corrections. He had served with the Department of Corrections for 7 years. He is survived by his wife and 5-year-old son.
