JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A Jackson police officer was arrested Friday over a domestic violence-related incident involving two officers.

Jackson Police Department is investigating at Belhaven Springs apartments on N Jefferson Street.

Multiple police vehicles flooded the parking lot just after noon Friday.

Officers at the scene declined to share any details with WLBT news crews.

Scanner traffic indicates that a woman, an officer, claimed she was being held against her will by an officer. We’ve provided a copy of that scanner traffic.

Jackson Police Department’s court records show an officer, Shawn Wells, was arrested for domestic violence and released on his own recognizance by Judge Henry Clay.

JPD spokesman Sam Brown confirmed the arrest but did not identify the officer.
