HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — A law enforcement spokesman says two police officers have been fatally shot following a traffic stop in the southern Mississippi city of Hattiesburg and that two suspects fled and are believed armed and dangerous.

Strain says both officers died of their injuries at a hospital. He told The Associated Press that two brothers are being sought as suspects, 26-year-old Curtis Banks and 29-year-old Marvin Banks. He says they fled and are being sought.
