JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A Jackson police officer has died after a motorcycle accident earlier in the week.

Corporal Allen Harper, Jr. got into a motorcycle accident on April 1. He had been on the Jackson police force since 1995.

A GoFundMe account has been set up by his family. Harper was married and a father of four children.
