Shooting on Nawffside

JPD issued the following statement and mug shot.  

Jackson Police are investigating a shooting incident that occurred on Northside Drive near Eastwood Road. 

Shortly after 4:30pm, officers responded to a shots-fired call in the area.  They later found a black female who told officers that a black male fired shots into her vehicle from his, as she drove down Northside Drive. 

Based on the victim’s description, officers later located the vehicle at a nearby apartment complex. The driver exited and later fled on foot. He was apprehended following a brief foot pursuit. 

The suspect, identified as 28-year-old, Lee Martin Adams was arrested and is charged with Aggravated Assault for allegedly shooting into an occupied vehicle. 

The female driver was not injured from the gunfire.

Sounds like they knew each other (they went right to where he lived) and he was chasing her.

Seems most shootings aren't by random chance. It certainly seems they knew each other. Most people even the hoodlums just randomly shoot at random people or objects. Generally always a motive with the person being targeted. Not random. Exception being a school or mass shooting. Retired police officer speaking here. This guy looks like he's on something indeed. Also on another note apartment complexes are breeding grounds for crime. Even in flowood certainly Jackson and Ridgeland by no means is an exception. Sad but true.

I live in Ridgeland. Several apartment complexes recently near my neighborhood have taken a turn for the worse over the past 4 years or so. Sad... I left Clinton 10 years ago bc the apartments across from my house was once made up of college students ended up being a scummy complex. My parents still live in Clinton and say it's really affected the area. So yes I do agree that apartments are breeding grounds for crime.

And that's not even the most surprising shooting of the day. Someone started shooting at the vigil for Lil Lonnie-- who was shot/killed in Jackson.

On the bright side, maybe the US military will start combat training in Jackson for spec ops troops before deployment to Middle East war zones, and the city can use the money to fix the roads.

Just a thought.

Y'all just think these are gunshots. Move along. It's nothing but loose rock on the roads where work is being done.

But, on another note; Apartments don't 'breed crime'. You have it backwards. Those urchins among us so disposed to criminal activity simply 'stay' in apartment buildings. So, in your quest to determine which came first...the criminal or the apartment, it was the criminal.

Since around 1950. An entrance to Eastover is about 3000ft from Northside Drive.

but why do you ask?

The statement said "Northside Drive near Eastwood Road. Which also happens to be about 3300ft from the entrance to Eastover.

Clearly this is a situation in which they knew each other. Stop with the Madison/Jackson argument. Yawn. Madison people are the worst. We get it. You think that you are so smart because you choose to live in Madison. Again, yawn.

7:32, I moved to Clinton a couple of years ago after living out of state for years. You are right about the apartments. Plan was to rent an apartment while we looked for a house, but we didn't because of how sketchy all the apartment complexes were. I was so surprised because when we moved away, Clinton wasn't like that. Also have to say I was surprised at how many check cashing and title loan places had popped up.

Neighborhood grapevine says JPD was chasing a shoplifter and the woman whose car was shot at was in the way of the fleeing shoplifter.

Louis LeFleur said...

Hmmmm.... piecing together the story from various sources now, apparently the neighborhood grapeville is b.s. in this case! Pity.

Do his friends call him "Lee Mar" as in "Lee Mar Adams"? Poor guy!

Adams Crime Family said...

OK, this has to be a joke.

Lee Martin Adams
Lamar Adams


Come on! That's too much of a coincidence!

Next you'll be telling me that his accomplices were Brinta Lex Zander and John "Deezie" Wright!

I saw this guy in a red convertible with top down... it was a mustang... he was speeding through Sherwood forest neighborhood... I didn't say anything as he was close by while I was walking my dog... I felt I was being racially insensitive had I asked him to slow down. So maybe next time my common sense will prevail.

I wonder if this is the same guy that shot at the eye doctor at Northside and I-55.

Sounds like he's a loose cannon as well as a bad shot.

9:04 So it's OK to shoot at someone as long as you know them?

Anonymous said...

9:28 I’m not sure how you inferred that from my comment. Obviously the answer to that is “no”. I was merely pointing out that Madison people love to act like everyone in Jackson is just going around shooting random people. I can’t believe that I wasted time replying to your stupid comment.

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.

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.
