HERNANDO, Miss. — A Hernando Police officer fired a shot at a suspect as officers responded to a call Tuesday in the Nesbit area, police said.

Police said it happened as officers responded to a home invasion call on Dogwood Hollow at 11:40 a.m. Once on the scene, one of the officers fired a shot at a female suspect. The suspect then ran off and was found and arrested about a half hour later.

Police have not said whether that person would be charged. They also have not said why the officer opened fire.
