GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX). – Monday evening, a man who had just started his lawn care business was killed and shot while finishing a job.
Gulfport Police responded to a scene in the 3000 block of Audubon Drive at 7:25pm
They found a man with multiple gunshot wounds to his back and a running-gas-powered leaf blower. According to Brian Switzer of Harrison County Coroner Brian Simmons the man was Kelvin Simmons Jr. from Saucier. Simmons was declared dead at the scene.
Authorities say Simmons was hired to mow the yard he was found in, but they aren’t yet sure who shot him or who would have motive for killing him. His autopsy will be performed Wednesday.
Switzer also stated, “Simons is currently on dialysis due kidney disease” and that he had just received a transplant. Simmons was one of nine siblings. He was just starting his lawn care business.
“He was just out there working, doing his job, earning a living… And it’s senseless,” Switzer said.
This is an ongoing investigation. If you have any information about this incident, you’re urged to call the Gulfport Police Department at 228-868-5959 or Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
