Jackson has one dead thug on the streets today as a robbery attempt in Northeast Jackson went awry.
|Eastover & Pinewood.|
A doctor was leaving home to compete in a shooting competition held at Magnolia Pistol Range in Byram at approximately 7:45 AM today. He made several trips from the house to his truck carrying what he needed for the competition. Unknown to him, two black males were cruising Ridgewood Road looking for someone to rob. They happened upon him walking to his truck near the intestection Ridgewood and Eastover roads. They took him captive at gunpoint and forced him drive to an ATM and withdraw a large amount of money. They also mentioned some intentions concerning his wife who was back at home. Intentions that were not exactly nice in nature.
They stopped at Eastover and Pinewood. They told him to get out of the vehicle. The good Doc managed to grab a pistol as he exited the truck and began firing. He shot and killed an Edwin Robinson of Cooper Road. One person at the scene said "he shot the shit out of him". The other suspect managed to run away and is currently at-large. It should be noted that there are woods on one side of the road. The suspect apparently had parked a tan SUV over at Northminister Baptist Church. He ran to the church and left in the SUV. It did not have a license plate.
JJ is withholding the identity of the victim at this time.
Update: Here is his criminal record according to my research.
There were no felonies or indictments filed at the circuit clerk's office. Justice Court clerk and jail records show:
