Firing squad possible means of execution in Mississippi

House Bill 638 still has lethal injection, which is now used, as the first option. But if the state’s lethal injection protocol is ruled unconstitutional, then other options for execution would be successive if one is ruled unconstitutional.

The final bill adopted Tuesday says the method of execution following lethal injection would be gas, electrocution and firing squad.
