A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by WLBT has uncovered more details surrounding the events that led to the death of two Bay St. Louis police officers and their shooter, Vicksburg native Amy Brogdon Anderson.

According to a report by WLBT, four calls were made between Dec. 13 and Dec. 14 regarding Anderson, with three of them occurring just hours before the shooting took place.
