Accidental shooting kills unborn child.

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement.

Unintentional Shooting Claims Life of Unborn Child in Rankin County

On Saturday, January 27th, 2018 at approximately 11:15 a.m. the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting that a 19 year old pregnant female had been shot in the back in the Robinhood Community and was being transported in a private vehicle to the hospital. The caller was told to meet law enforcement and medical personnel at the intersection of Highway 18 and Star Road. When the victim arrived at the location Brandon Fire Department and Pafford Ambulance Service began treating her immediately. The victim was transported to University Medical Center by Pafford Ambulance. The caller/witness gave a statement to Rankin County Sheriff’s Deputies and Brandon Police Officers.

Rankin County Deputies responded to the location of the shooting in the 100 block of Northside Drive in Robinhood to preserve evidence while other deputies located the victim’s father who had discharged the firearm.

So far the investigation has revealed that the 19 year old victim was called by the 48 year old father who asked that she pick him up as he was finished hunting for the morning. The victim drove to his location on Northside Drive. The father opened the passenger side door and went to place his hunting rifle in the back seat when it discharged striking the driver/victim in the lower back.

The father moved the victim to the passenger seat and drove to a residence for help. At this time the sister law got into the vehicle and began driving it towards the hospital and also called 911.

The 4 month old unborn child did not survive the trauma from the gunshot wound. The 19 year old mother is currently in surgery at UMC and her condition is not known at this time.

No charges have been filed at this time but the incident is still under investigation by Rankin County Deputies along with District Attorney Michael Guest and Rankin County Coroner David Ruth

5:20- Isn’t it funny how the tone of comments on this blog are radically different when the story involves white people? This is a tragic accident. Same basic facts about 20 miles west would be dumb people doing dumb stuff, or something like that.

7:41 PM......Hunting season is still open. Closes on Jan 31st.

Tragic accident.. Could have easily been prevented if he had just unloaded his rifle before he put it in his vehicle like any responsible hunter should always do.

@11:33 "white people@? I read the story and race never crossed my mind. Tragedy and terrible is what I thought. I then read the comments and see where you injected race into the story. I went back and read the story again and no where does it reference race or even imply a certain racial group. So did you stereotype and decide they were "white people" because they are from Rankin county? You, my friend, appear to have made a racist comment out of a terrible tragedy. I would suggest that you drop the racial chip on your shoulder and pray for this poor family--regardless of what race they are.

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.
