Woman shoots at Madison police officers

Someone apparently got a case of the stupid.  The Madison Police Department issued the following statement:


On Thursday, November 24, 2016 at approximately 5:18 PM officers of the Madison Police Department responded to a report of a suicidal subject at a residence on South Place Drive in Madison.  Upon the officers’ arrival they learned that a female subject inside the residence had fired a shotgun at another occupant of the residence.  The person fired upon was not injured.  Officers were able to clear the residence and determine that the female subject had barricaded herself in a bathroom.  The Special Response Team was called and upon their arrival they attempted to make contact with the female in the bathroom.  Believing that the subject was about to harm herself the officers breached the bathroom door with a shield.  As they entered the bathroom the female subject fired the shotgun towards the officers.  As officers took cover one officer returned fire with his side-arm weapon striking the subject in her left arm, right arm, and breast.  The shotgun was secured at which time officers rendered first aid to the subject.  Madison Fire Department and Pafford Paramedics arrived at the residence and administered aid to the subject.  She was transported to the University of MS Medical Center where she is listed in stable condition.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation was contacted and arrived on the scene to take charge of the investigation.  As is policy for officers involved in shootings, the officer who discharged his firearm has been assigned to non-enforcement, administrative duties pending the conclusion of the investigation.

Any further information regarding this incident will be released by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

She is very lucky that she is not dead. You can't tell me she wasn't aware the police were at the door

As a resident of Madison, I would like to "reach out" to this troubled family. Would anyone else like to help take up a collection, toward the relocation of these misplaced persons TO JACKSON, where people like that belong?

Sounds like she was attempting suicide by cop. Or she was whacked out on meth.

This doesn't happen in Jackson! Madison thugs!

Amen to the first post and kiss my ass to the second two. Obviously trouble, as anyone is in this circumstance. Glad no officer was shot.

Perhaps Gluckstadt won't have these kinds of crime issues. Madison is finished.

Ditto 11:32.

Many people are saying she must be Caucasian.....otherwise she would be dead.

Attn 12:10 She apparently has 3 bullet holes in her. It does not appear that wounding her was the policeman's objective. It may nor be too late for you to go to the "black lives matter" racial protest in Chicago.

I'm going to make a statement that will not be well taken. Years ago our grandparents didn't rely on the pharmaceutical industry to create a remedy for everything that was wrong. Those people helped raise us. Our current culture has fallen prey to the preditorial effect of the drug companies that are almost WORSE than the illegal drug makers. Think about it. We keep drugging ourselves into anfeel good date of mind then one way or another we will have to pay. Our society needs to toughen up. Did your parents have to take crap to deal with life? Did your grandad have to hold up a stress card during combat when he landed at Normandy or Iwo Jima? Our current society is worthless.

Are the people on this site obsessed with race or what. Jesus.

This could have happened anywhere. My thanks and to the law enforcement officers.
To everyone else who appears to have this continuing disagreement regarding the best, safest, most lucrative or prettiest place to live, my hope is that you all get it "worked out". I feel as though each of you is doing your best to live where you wish.

I am appalled at the tacky comment by 10:50. How inappropriate. Some family members reach the breaking point on Holidays. So grateful no officers were injured and I pray the woman gets help; regardless of her race.

@10:50. I will add you to my prayer list that you find the Lord during this holiday season.

That's the civility one can expect in the next 4 years... "I am watching them go blind".

@2:20 90% of the people who post on this site are obsessed with race. You must just be reading this site if you did not know that.

Just An Observation.. said...

So - To recap. The cops were afraid she would hurt herself so they busted the door down and shot her three times. Gotcha!

Anonymous said...

6:57 So, to recap; the cops got a 911call reporting a subject with a shogun who was trying to harm others. Additionally she may be suicidal. Officers responded to a dangerous woman baracaded in the restroom who might try to harm herself and the officers. Officers breached the bathroom door and defended themselves when she tried to harm/kill them.

Who said anything about RACE? I saw the house on the news, last night, and while the blue of the shutters was APPALLING - particularly considering the brick color, and the unusually loud olive green of the siding, I still could not make a guess as to the race of the home's occupants. Occasionally, you see rednecky types moving into Madison - the kind of people who think it's OK to choose a color from "their team's" official colors, for painting their shutters. My assumption was that the cheap-looking blue was a football color. And again: plenty of low-class WHITES do that sort of thing.

But wouldn't these taste-challenged people be more comfortable in Byram, Southwest Jackson, or Pearl, where that sort of color scheme is considered NORMAL?

Maybe I am not that smart but who, beside herself, could the woman hurt locked in the bathroom? Why not just wait her out?

Anonymous said...

Mary needs to buy some tear gas and flash bangs.

I'm sure the lawsuit will be forthcoming.

Forensics 101 said...

Exactly, 10:08. There was no way she would hurt anyone else locked inside a bathroom. What about a 'hostage negotiation team' or similar folks trained in counseling? Or introduce gas under the bathroom door. No time for that, here. Bust down that door, knowing she would more than likely discharge the weapon. Great thought process at work there.

Maybe Madison PD should have called in the Pearl guys who stop drug traffickers on Interstate 20.

Naturally they had to suspend the shooter during the investigation, but the one being investigated should include the man who gave the order.

So....Get your own cop job in 3..2..1.

Anonymous said...

Sure you are smart 10:08. It just probably failed to occur to you that she could have blown her head off with the "shotgun" at any time.

Anonymous said...

12:58, she could have. What difference does it make if she would have instead of the cops shooting her? They did fail to kill her but it wasn't from lack of trying. Of course she could have only wounded herself also or she could have came out in a few minutes unharmed.

I am so pleased that neither the suspect who had attempted to kill other persons in the home nor the police officers were not killed. I don't know why she locked herself in the bathroom but she was a suspect for attempted murder.

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.
