Yazoo City Police Chief Jay Winstead submitted his resignation Monday morning.

The Mayor and Board of Alderman have asked Yazoo County Sheriff Jacob Sheriff to serve as Police Chief until a new chief can be hired.

Winstead’s resignation comes following a violent weekend in Yazoo where several people were wounded outside a nightclub Friday night and when an 8-year-old was wounded in a drive-by shooting the following night.

Winstead’s resignation follows a pattern of frequent turnovers in the Chief’s position the past several years.
