Jackson police were at the scene Saturday of a fatal officer-involved shooting.
The incident happened around 7:30 a.m. in the 1400 block Fernwood Drive near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, police said.
After police stopped the suspect vehicle and called for backup, the vehicle pulls away, makes a U-turn and then began driving in reverse toward the officer, police said.
