Double Homicide This Morning (updated)

JPD issued the following statement. 

Jackson Police are investigating a fatal shooting that resulted in the death of two men.  It happened shortly before 4:00am in the 1200 block of North West Street. 

Officers responded after receiving a call from Baptist Medical security of a vehicle accident involving a pickup truck. When they arrived, officers found the truck just off the roadway that appeared to have been impacted by gunfire. The driver and passenger also appeared to have been struck multiple times and died at the scene. 

Residents in the area told officers that several shots were heard but no one saw what occurred. 

Investigators are working to gather additional information, as they canvass the area for any possible surveillance that may have captured the incident. 

The victims have not yet been positively identified but both are black males.  A motive remains unknown. 

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS(8477).  You could receive a cash reward of up to $2500 if your information leads to an arrest.

Update: Victims are  22-year-old, Nathaniel Rashad Allen and 26-year-old, Kenyatta McGee.    It looks like Judge Green won't have to worry about either one of them completing their probation.

This is a horrific incident that warrants a major response from Baby Choke, Stokes and other black "leaders" of Jackson. But I gurandamntee you that it will get less focus than that f*cking joke of a zoo in West Jackson that is hemorrhaging cash. It will definitely get less focus than JPS bonds.

Black leaders of Jackson: this type of violent crime IS NOT OK. Can't wait to see your response. Just more blacks getting gunned downed in my city; nothing to see move along and lets get back to railing about the dammn zoo and that JPS bond BS.

My, my, two blocks from the Capitol. Is His Honor ol' blood and guts still out of town at the Haaarrrvard seminar so that he is unable to provide his inspiring public safety leadership?

If you consider the options, why would anyone admit to seeing or knowing anything?
Wait for a few days to pass, call crime stoppers and collect the reward.

Jackson is running up quite a butcher's bill this summer.

hmmm....I have missed the expectation that white mayors are expected to publicly condemn every violent white crime. I see comments which suggest the white community is culturally responsible for pedophilia and sexual abuse of minors though most are white. Indeed, I seem to remember defenses like provocation on the part of the victim.

This is particularly ironic when it was reported today that the marker where Emmett Till was thrown into the Tallahatchie River has been repeatedly stolen or riddled with bullet holes.

And, some of you wonder why you are assumed to be racist?

@7:43 - actually, there is NOTHING wrong with expecting a mayor to biblically condemn every violent crime. It's not necessary that they go on TV after every event to make their proclamation, though. They can and SHOULD do that through their ACTIONS, the goals they set for their administration, and the priorities they set as they go about their jobs every day. The fact of the matter is that violent crime in the city of Jackson is WAY out of proportion the to population and it matters not whether the mayor is black white or green. He is doing NOTHING to change that fact. He doesn't speak about it. He doesn't prioritize funding to fight it. He doesn't personally appeal to the citizens of Jackson to help change the status quo. He doesn't speak up about the total ineffectiveness of Judge Green and/or encourage citizens to vote her out of office by pointing out how she constantly turns violent criminals free so they can continue to terrorize innocent taxpayers. He does NOTHING. He deserves whatever critizism he gets.

7:43 what does racism have to do with a drug deal gone bad? Sounds to me you are the racist.

"...reported today that the marker where Emmett Till was thrown into the Tallahatchie River has been repeatedly stolen or riddled with bullet holes.And, some of you wonder why you are assumed to be racist?"

Since you mention the incident in the Delta (at Money, Mississippi) you probably also meant to mention the racist graffiti painted on the black church in Greenville just over a year and a half ago. You remember, the graffiti that indicated support for Trump? And you remember that the investigation determined it was done by a black church member. And that was just one of many, many similar instances across the South where graffiti and church burnings have been found to have been perpetrated by blacks.

If you doubt me, Google 'who is burning and desecrating black churches today'.

And you wonder why some of you are assumed to be racist?

@7:43- yOU don't know who vandalized that sign!!! You just ASSUME the person are (a) white & (b) a resident of Mississippi. Considering that there were a couple of THOUSAND visitors in Money, MS this past weekend, about 1/2 of whom were NOT residents of Mississippi, you are making quite an assumption. Likewise for the race of the vandal. At least 25% of those visitors were black. There were a few other races sprinkled in as well. Could have been any one of those visitors. in fact, it could have been anybody... up to and including a local black kid who got bored because there is absolutely nothing to do on a hot summer afternoon in the Mississippi Delta. You assume WE (meaning ALL white Mississippians) are racist because YOU are racist.

This type of crime seems to have surged in the city of Jackson ever since McMillan left the Sheriffs post. I know he had units operating in the city. I wonder what’s different now with the way the Sheriff’s Office is structured...

Kingfish said...

Wrong. Crime actually went up in Jackson when Mac was chief of JPD. Truth is, Mac was a mediocre Sheriff. Everyone bought into his act because he talked tough on the radio. Couldn't manage a budget, way behind on technology, had his share of jail problems as well, just no riots although inmates did escape and die during his tenure.

As for this double, it was retaliation. Shooters in two vehicles fired at these guys. They both were convicted felons, house burglary and stolen firearm possession.

Plain ol' Catfish said...

Thank you for keeping them honest Kingfish - I kind of already knew where you were going when you put this comment in the original post

"Victims are 22-year-old, Nathaniel Rashad Allen and 26-year-old, Kenyatta McGee. It looks like Judge Green won't have to worry about either one of them completing their probation."

Look if random white people were being robbed and killed on a weekly, hell even monthly basis in Jackson, I wouldn't have any problem saying be extra careful out there.

But a solid majority of the murders in Jackson are between people with bad blood between them.

McMillan may have been “mediocre” in your opinion...admittedly everone can improve, but he was way more proactive when it came to crushing crime than Lewis or Victor Mason have been. These two clowns were a step in the wrong direction for the folks that want improving law and order.

Someone please explain how law enforcement is supposed to stop crime that occurs between individuals who have personal altercations. The police cannot be with us 24/7. However, if you use drugs, chances are you will die from using the drug or you will die from not paying your dealer. Drug dealers don't usually kill their paying customers.

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.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.
