The number of victims of the US military plane crash in the state of Mississippi increased to 16, local media reported.

The KC-130 Marine Corps military refueling tanker crashed on Monday in the Leflore County near the Highway 82, the WMC media outlet reported.

According to investigators, the debris were found on both sides of the highway, which is a sign of an explosion before the crash.

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant called on everyone to pray for victims of the crash.

“Please join Deborah [Bryant’s wife] and me in praying for those hurting after this tragedy. Our men and women in uniform risk themselves every day to secure our freedom,” he said, as quoted by the WMC.

Stephen Cohen, member of the US House of Representatives, also expressed condolences to the victims’ families.

A man, who was being pursued by police officers, took refuge on Wilford Burgess’s roof, evading police for nearly five hours and creating a standoff. Crisis negotiators arrived on the scene, trying to coax the man to come down. After several hours where authorities were unable to convince the man to leave the roof, Burgess decided to take action, with the entire incident caught on film.

The incident began at 6:34 am local time when law enforcement officials received a call some someone who said they were being followed. Once deputies arrived at the scene, a man was spotted jumping from one roof to the next, coming to a stop on top of Burgess’s home.

Wrenn said she was woken up at about 7:00 am local time when deputies began shouting: “We know where you are. We can see you.”

After being on Burgess’ roof for about an hour or so, Burgess said he felt it was time to try taking matters into his own hands. He decided to bring out a ladder and climb up there himself. “He’d been up there too long,” Burgess said. “I figured … if they can’t get him off, I can.”

Burgess’ grandaughter, Ashley Wrenn, captured the whole scene on video. She said she isn’t surprised her elderly grandfather did what he did.
