JPD issued the following press release:


On Thursday, November 19, 2015 at approx. 5:57 PM, Precinct 3 officers responded to Shell Service Station at 5492 Watkins Dr. regarding a shooting. Upon officers’ arrival it was learned that an unidentified female had been shot near the gas pumps at this location. She was later pronounced deceased on scene. She appeared to have been shot in the head.

During the course of the investigation, it was learned that a black male subject with dreads approached the victim, shot her and fled the scene in a blue in color Ford Mustang with large rims.

The victim has not been identified pending notification of next of kin.

Is Zebulum the thug who shot the lady at Logan's?

This is also the same mustang which left the Logan steak house homicide in Ridgeland today. This guy f($()Ed up and strayed into Madison county.

Clarion Ledger is now saying the second woman from Logan's has died.
They also said that they were both white females. Coincidence?

All the Jackson haters with their perception of crime. I live in Jackson, which makes me better than all of you racists who live outside the city limits. Of course, I don't live on Watkins Drive, nor do any of my sanctimonious Bernie Sanders supporting fellow Fondrenites. In fact, we only go near there when we zoom by on 220.

But at least we live in the city limits. And we have Parlor Market!

Leave Parlor Market out of it. Good folks. Great food. Go to your cupboard and grab a can of Viennas. And. Shut. Your. Silly. Yap.

Ship him to Madison County. He'll be tried, convicted and sent on his way before Shuler Smith finishes his coffee.

I have a new idea for what to do with thugs like this. harvest their internal organs. I'd rather a good person live than someone like this.

is this NOT a Hate crime

1:58am. No coincidence. The thug was hunting white women. No doubt about it. The poor woman in the area for business walking from her hotel to Logan's just didn't have a clue the dangerous area she was in, but word will get out soon to others. Remember the woman at the LaQunita on Beasley whose room was robbed, and her poor little dog let out to never be found just recently, too? Thanks, but no thanks. I won't be anywhere near these areas ever, and particularly anywhere in Jackson. It is just not safe anywhere and particularly at night. No wonder people can't give their homes away in north Jackson. Thugs with guns are everywhere.

7:32 -- I'm afraid you need re-education on the definition of a Hate Crime, lest you micro-agress again.

An example of a hate crime would be placing a piece of tape over the portrait of an African-American professor at Harvard Law School. Murdering privileged cis-hetero white womyn is, by definition, not a hate crime because (1) people of color are, by fiat of the Critical Race Studies Department, not capable of racism; and (2) any misdeeds by people of color are directly and solely attributable to centuries of Structural Racism (tm).

You are instructed to confess your privilege to the nearest BLM Activist and perform twenty Hail Ta-Nahesies.

Why, bless your heart. You do realize Logan's is in Ridgeland and is only 3.4 miles from Renaissance, don't you? And it's only 5.7 miles to the Walmart in Madison.

Logan's is 4.5 miles from Whole Foods and 5.3 miles from Fondren. So why bring them up?

But......Ridgeland and Madison are safe. Better get in your bunker!

Murder is murder. You can call it a hate crime if it makes you feel better, I guess. I'm not sure how shooting into a JATRAN bus or shooting into a house on Watkins Dr fits into the "seeking out white women" thing, though. But whatever.

Anonymous said...

Sadly, any Ridgeland business that has ingress/egress from County Line Road will be exponentially more likely to have customers become targets like this innocent woman.

Until decent people declare war on this thug culture (which, unfortunately, has infected other races these days), these crimes will continue.

Prayers for the family of this woman who was senselessly killed when trying walk 150 feet from her hotel to a restaurant.

He is mentally ill. No need to call everyone a thug. The true question is how he was able to get a gun. Until we address the issue of guns in America, crime will not reduce. The majority of crimes are committed by stolen guns. Over 300 million guns in America. Do we really need that many guns? Hunting and sport use is fine, but everyone doesn't need a gun. Random acts of violence cannot be prevented. But, we can do something about it by limiting their access to weapons.

Sure Ridgeland is in Madison County, but the Logans is feet from Jackon City Limits. I'd call ridgeland a buffer zone. Its sad this has taken place. Hope DA guest gets to put him through the ringer and I hope and pray this case is tried as a hate crime(s). If it doesn't, then welcome to the double standard.

Anonymous said...

Can't possibly be a hate crime. The person who committed the murders was black and the people murdered were white. You are a racist if you even thing it might be racist. The man should be immediately released from jail and the cops who arrested him fired and charged.

The lady that was killed at Logans wasn't a rapist or a drug dealer, like the victim you mentioned. She was actually a productive member of society.

Anonymous said...

If this lunatic was "hunting white women," then you had better hurry and get all of the white women in Madison and Rankin under lock and key and whatever you do, don't let them out, because guess what...this guy had a CAR and was able to DRIVE all the way to Madison County! Gasp! How did he get passed the barrier?!!! Oh, wait...there isn't one. Aren't there white women in Madison and Rankin?

Only an idiot thinks they're safe and insulated just because they are a couple miles north from the Jackson city limits. You must be vigilant no matter where you are, and to think otherwise is just foolish.

Anonymous said...

Before you make idiotic statements like that, please compare the crime statistics of the greater metro area. Anyone who believes they are just as safe in Jackson as the surrounding communities is delusional.

Anonymous said...

I'd just like to say "fuck off" to everyone who wants to jump on these threads after someone has been killed or been the victim of another crime just to gloat about where said tragedy occurred. You're the lowest common denominator of human filth that we have in our community. Have a better day.

Anonymous said...

9:40 -- Who says, besides you, that this criminal was mentally ill? Perhaps he is just a low-life street level punk with an attitude and woke up sometime after noon with a twitch that told him he needed to pop a few caps and down a couple of white bitches. Stolen guns? I don't know how he got his shooter, but you are right the odds are good he didn't buy it legally at Bass Pro Shop. And your statement: "Random acts of violence cannot be prevented. But, we can do something about it by limiting their access to weapons." Random acts? Nope, a hard-hearted criminal with no regard for human life. Limiting access to weapons? This is completely a fantasy. Criminals (thugs) are always going to have access to weapons. It's part of the culture and life in the hood. You are delusional and have lost touch with reality and in serious need of counseling. Prayers for the families of the victims. And prayers for the auto parts father who also lost his life.

Anonymous said...

9:40 stated the shooter is mentally ill.

Please don't tell me someone will try to present an insanity defense for this murderer.

Anonymous said...

10:18, I'm not suggesting Jackson is "just as safe" as Madison or Rankin; I'm saying that just because you are in Madison or Rankin doesn't mean you are safe. Obviously, there is a serious, serious crime element that mostly live within the city of Jackson. However, their crimes do not stop at the Madison and Rankin county lines. Also, being vigilant won't always save you. I don't think any level of vigilance could save anyone from a psychopath shooting from his car. I do know that running and hiding in outlying counties won't solve the problem, because the problem will just continue to creep outside the county lines. We must find a way to stop the criminal element. Not run and hide from it.

Is it even remotely possible he was influenced by the ISIS command to "kill where you are"?

Anonymous said...

How do you know that this thug is mentally ill? And how do you know how he obtained the gun he used. I doubt he purchased it legally with a BATF form processed.

Your logic makes about as much sense as getting a vasectomy because your neighbor has too many kids.

Incidentally, I know a couple of good surgeons who can pull your head out of your ass.

Why stay and live in a ghetto? When the criminals cross over into Madison and Rankin and commit crimes they are usually caught and sent to jail. When they are caught committing crimes in Hinds they are immediately released back on the streets. Some people enjoy living in a cesspool, some don't. Why should those who do not like living in a cesspool stay? It is about time to flush Jackson. It is already over flowing.

Check out his social media profile. He was not influenced by ISIS. He was, however, influenced by the 'Black Lives Matter' terrorist. He targeted these women because they were white, and he's been brought up to believe that white people are the reason for everything wrong in his life.

Anonymous said...

Hey 10:43AM - It's not "running and hiding", it's retreating and regrouping. The burbs, esp the newer ones like Madison, have implemented guidelines and procedures that allow them to fight this crap without their hands being tied. It's not much different than Detroit going thru bankruptcy in the sense that a modern playbook allows beneficial growth while deterring bad behavior.

Anny said...

11:20 what name does he go by on Facebook? I don't see anyone by his actual name... Assuming it's something like ZebBustACap James

These poor women that were killed by this savage were both from out of State, and neither had any idea the amount of danger they were putting themselves into when they went to Jackson. Unfortunately, many people who aren't from around here don't seem to comprehend just how dangerous Jackson is, and many end up dead or robbed. We should put up a billboard on the interstates coming into town, warning people how dangerous Jackson is. Similar to what's in Memphis. How many more out of town people are we going to allow to be killed simply because they aren't aware just how third world Jackson is. I feel like as a Christian community we should do more to warn the out of towners that Jackson is deadly dangerous.

This is really concerning regardless where it happens in the metro area. Fondren Unwrapped was last night this could have been much worse if this thug targeted that event.

Okay... the flood tide is rising. Many of us are gonna step up to higher ground. (We don't consider it hiding - that's what you do in Jackson). However if you want to stay and attempt to bail...

Jacktown is history. Gone. Over. Toast. Move on.

The guy may have been mentally ill.....or just plain mean. If Guttalife had killed the doctor last summer instead of getting himself killed would you assume he was mentally ill. It could be poor upbringing...lack of values...etc. No one knows.

The point is innocent people...some from out of state were targeted by this animal. Stay out of Jackson unless you must pass through and then you better watch your back.

11:20..I too would like to know what social media site did you see profile & under what name?

This situation is a lot more complicated than all of you know. This man was a straight A student at a local community college only a year ago. He was polite and respectful toward all his instructors--black or white. His mother openly wept before an instructor upon learning her son was going to succeed. He was loved by many on this campus. Calling him a thug is a cop out. It allows us to feel better about not devoting more effort to solving the more complicated issues that led to this man's committing these horrifying murders.

Kingfish said...

He has no prior record. He was on dean's list two years ago.

He was probably on something. He was so amped up that as of 5:00 PM yesterday, the police still had not interviewed him. They want him to be of a clear state of mind when they do.

What is the minimum time of lawlessness @12:05 AM to qualify for thug status?

Anonymous said...

The word "thug" suggests someone who has made a career of violence and crime. This man was not this. I knew him. A person doesn't become a thug overnight. If your own brother who had lived a respectable life suddenly one day went crazy and killed two random people for no reason at all, you know you wouldn't call him a thug. You would believe something went horribly wrong.

Anonymous said...

Yup, you would have said "he was a good boy".

Kingfish said...

He was until this week. No priors. Deans list in school. I think he screwed with the wrong drugs and went nuts. Now he deserves the death penalty if guilty.

Anonymous said...

If he's paranoid schizophrenic, he screwed with not taking the right drugs which schizophrenics will do if there isn't someone seeing to it that they take their drugs every day. I don't know what his living situation was but he needed to be living with a family member whose responsibility it was to insure he's taking his drugs. My brother is schizophrenic.

Anonymous said...

I am not trying to suggest he deserves no punishment for what he's done. He MOST certainly does. However, saying he is a common thug only allows what happened to continue to happen again and again. Drug use and mental illness have got to be dealt with in a more meaningful way than we have approached them for the last several decades. And if his parents knew he was having trouble and did nothing, then they should suffer criminal negligence charges similar to if a psychiatrist, counselor, or priest has to let authorities know something if they fear someone is about to har him or herself or others.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
