PASS CHRISTIAN, Miss. (AP) - Pass Christian city leaders met for the first time since two people were gunned down following the city’s big Mardi Gras parade.

WLOX TV reports (https://bit.ly/1PF5mKo) there was no discussion of the shootings at Tuesday night’s meeting, but the board did approve overtime for the police department in light of the ongoing murder investigation.

Over the past nine days, Police Chief Tim Hendricks says the Pass Christian police department has spent countless hours investigating the post Mardi Gras parade shooting.

Hendricks says he hopes within the next few days, he will be able to release new information about the investigation.
