The current condition of the suspect is not yet unknown. The identities of both suspects have not been released. 

This investigation is being conducted by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation who later arrived at the scene. 

Store surveillance captured the incident as it unfolded and is still in the process of being reviewed. 
(2) Jackson Police have learned that the suspect injured this morning has died.  He is identified as 30-year-old, Elliot Reed. 

The second suspect involved is identified as 26-year-old, Chauncy Reed.  Chauncy Reed was arrested and has been charged with Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer and Capital Murder.

Consequences boys, consequences..

The "family", or "community leaders" always question these situations. They never believe the truth, facts or any accurate findings. It always results in lawsuits and the same ol' line:

1) He was a good boy, just getting his life on track.
2) Future rap artist (last weeks murder)
3) The police killed him because he's black.

Lawsuit filed in 3,2,1.....
Shots fired at funeral in 3,2,1

If shot by "whitey"

Burn city down in 3,2,1

WJTV had the store surveillance video posted last night. While it was grainy and covered with WJTV's logo, it was obvious that the police officer was under fire before he fired his weapon. It looks to be a justified shoot. Is anyone surprised that the victims family is saying what a good person he was and that he would never shoot at a policeman? Well, the video proves them wrong! I'm glad you are okay officer but I hate to think what the scum bag shooters family is saying about you. When will mamas and cousins stop defending the illegal of the street urchins?

No doubt Donner, Minka and the others intent on cementing Jackson's lawless reputation have already fingered the officer as being at fault.

Ole cuz looks like a perfect character witness. We should just take his word and believe him that his lil cousin wouldn't do that.

His "cousin" is wearing a Black Gangster Disciples hat during the interview. Doesn't lend much credibility.

Is it just me or is Jackson quickly approaching the state having to step in to get things under control.

I'm certain he wanted to buy his momma a house. That exonerates him completely.

Too bad, but play stupid games and win stupid prizes. BTW, is it just me or does anyone else feel the mayor and city council are squabbling over the zoo move and threatening to release officers' names while the city has become a graveyard?

The officer deserves a commendation for valor.

The city council and mayor likely view him as an Uncle Tom.

Jackson is lost. It is run by animals and street trash.

Officer attacked by perp. Other perp pulls gun and points at officer. Officer uses training and instinct to notice gun pointed at him and busts a cap in other perp. Good work officer! Stupid decision by perp.

Eff'g sewer in Jackson!!! These turds in SUVs that prowl around after midnight!! So proud of the cop willing to challenge them!! Too bad he couldn't drop all 2 or 3 of them!!

Don't disagree with any of the previous comments, but let's not forget the others that fail in this incodent. Yes, Mayor and City Council fiddle while Jackson burns. Yes, Donner etal will probably demand feds send someone down to 'independently' investigate this out of control police force shooting down innocent young rising stars.

But WLBT ought to be castigated, and ashamed for their so called reporting of the incident with nothing but how good a kid he was and how he would never ever do anything bad crap, while competitor JTV actually does a little digging and reports real NEWS - facts, documentation of what happened, not just the 'let's stir up the community' crap.

WLBT should turn in its license if their report is what they present as news. Howard, (I know you read this blog) you ought to apologize on air for your report, after seeing what competitor JTV aired.

News? Obviously not at LBT. All that was aired on that station was b/s that was easy to get and raised their audiences wrongly placed anger.

The sad fact is that in human families of children who behave badly in society, are indeed often seen as " good kids" at home. That is because the parents have been either physically or psychological controlling ( sometimes brutally so) at home or the parents are either emotionally or physically absent.

" Good " kids, actually " act out" where they feel most safe and at home is where " most safe" should be. Good parents are there to make sure that acceptable behavior is learned in those moments.

There really are a small percentage babies who are born "bad" and among the few who seem so, it turns out that they were left in a crib or play pen or confined seating with no real nurturing( see studies of children adopted from Romanian orphanages) .

Not all females in our species are born with maternal instincts. ( research of births where mothers do not make contact with the child ). And even the ones who are maternal, run a risk in turning their babies over to the care of strangers who don't have a bond with that child. If the caretaker is not focused on interacting with the baby but is watching soaps or cleaning your house, your baby isn't being nurtured and human babies need human contact beyond being fed and a diaper change.

Parenting used to be instinctive, then observation and increasing medical knowledge was thrown in as well a elementary research via clinical observation and samples. Now we are in the computer age and the age of neuroscience.

If you want to raise " good kids" who are also even smarter and happier and more confident and self-aware than you are and if you want to reduce the " woes" bad humans inflict on society, a good place to start is by learning about human development and successful parenting from those who have spent their lives researching how humans develop and behave.

We really are mammals , you know. And, you should know enough about , oh , dogs or horses, to know that how they are bred and how they are trained matters. Even those mammals are individually different in some ways. Dogs, however, can't help themselves or control their environment as well as we could if our egos allowed it.

11:08: My father was absent most of the time and beat me regularly whilst growing up. As far as I know, I haven’t pointed a firearm at ANYONE, much less a cop.

I’ll let you know when I decide to “act out”. Perhaps I will over the oatmeal consistency at the retirement home.

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.
