Hattiesburg glows blue in solidarity for fallen officers

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Blue lights are glowing all over Hattiesburg in memory of the fallen police officers.

Blue bulbs have replaced traditional ones all over the city to honor Officers Benjamin Deen and Liquori Tate. Blue can be seen glowing from porches, lamps, and car headlights in an outpouring of love and support for those who protect and serve our city.

Walmart, Lowe's, and Home Depot in Hattiesburg have sold out of blue light bulbs.

Batteries Plus Bulbs in Hattiesburg is offering free blue light bulbs to those who would like them. Due to the overwhelming demand, the store is struggling to keep them in stock. Another shipment of 500 blue bulbs is scheduled for late Wednesday morning, around 11 a.m.

Those who would like to honor the brave men that were killed in the line of duty are encouraged to pick up their blue light bulbs while they are available.
