We've now learned that Officer Fred Ensminger is on administrative leave while the investigation continues into a shooting in Diamondhead, one week ago tonight.
But some residents allege even more trouble and want him gone for good.
We should first point out that there's been no formal charges filed against Ensminger or the man he was in a gunfight with, Jerry Chamliss, last Wednesday night.
But there's still lingering concern over the officer, especially since residents tell us he still lives in Diamondhead.
Well before last Wednesday's shootout in Diamondhead, residents Kimberly Gilsinger and Jay Wade were leery of Ensminger.
"We're scared to have him in the community quite frankly," Gilsinger said.
"I'm concerned about him being on the force and I'm concerned about the people who kept him on the force," Wade said.
Chamliss admitted shooting Ensminger in the shoulder last week after police say Ensminger followed Chamliss' wife home for a traffic stop.
Ensminger drove his private vehicle and exchanged shots with Chamliss.
"My very first gut reaction was oh there is something that is not right about this," Gilsinger said.
It marked a second situation causing alarm for Gilsinger.
In late June, she and her husband filed a complaint against Ensminger, alleging violent threats to her teenage son, three of Wade's boys and two others. They'd been swimming in this lake at the time, the youngest, ten years old.
"They needed to know that he would get in the water and drown every last one of them if they didn't get out," Gilsinger said.
The complaint also alleges Einsminger told the boys he had bullets in his pocket.
"I just felt like he was something of a loose cannon," Wade said.
While we were out here Wednesday, we learned that Ensminger lives here in Diamondhead. So we went to his home to get a comment. He wasn't there at the time but a woman answering the door called the complaint way out of line and lacking other witness testimony.
That woman wouldn't identify herself. But Property Association President Ray Massey told us off camera that Einsminger responded to a call of kids misbehaving on the lake back on June 28th. He did say some inappropriate things and got a verbal reprimand and a warning.
"That's not enough; what he did was a felony he threatened to physically harm or kill our children," Gilsinger said.
Gilsinger says she's not aware the kids were doing anything bad in the water when Officer Einsminger confronted them and that many were shaken up by the incident.
There was no comment today from Diamondhead Police Chief Pat Mahoney about the complaint or last week's shooting.
He says he'll talk once the final report is released from state police.
