Though officials responded to a call of a suspect shoooting one or more people at the clinic around 10AM, it was too late. Thompson had succumbed to her injuries and died before officials could transport her to the hospital.

"We found the shooter dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head," Dickerson said, adding that it is believed to be a "domestic-related" incident,” states Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.

It has been indicated that Thompson was set to run for the District 5 Seat in the Mississippi House of Representatives. He was listed on the August 6 ballot for the Democratic Party election.
