Two Women Shot

JPD issued the following statement. 

Jackson Police are investigating a shooting after two females are injured.  It happened just before 3:30pm in the 300 block of East Ridgeway Street. 

Officers responded to the area for a shooting call. When they arrived, officers found a 33-year-old black female lying near the intersection of West Street suffering from a gunshot injury.  Moments later, officers received a second call about a 17-year-old black female that had arrived at a hospital, also suffering from a gunshot injury. 

Based on witness account, the suspect is a black female, driving a white sedan. Words were exchanged between the females before the driver produced a firearm and discharged it.  Both females, standing outside the vehicle, were struck before the suspect drove away.  

The 33-year-old was transported and is listed in very critical condition. The juvenile is in stable condition. 

Investigators may have a possible identity on the suspect and are working to verify that information as well as her whereabouts.

Damn 1157, if you can throw a stone that distance, you need to start practicing for the Olympics. Not even a John Daly drive plus a couple of Tigers irons could reach this distance. But of course, you don't really care, it was just a way for you to get in your daily butch about Jackson.

could a band come into Jackson and perform a drive-by shooting skit? could we tell Jacksonians it’s just “art” or to “just get over it”?

Wow. Now we know what skit the Forest Hill band will perform Friday night.

Property values in The Fondren just took another dive. Sell out while you can, but don't head north, head east.

If Frank Melton had lived we wouldn't still be dealing with this kind of problem.

Folks on that end of The Fondren should always keep their heads on swivel.

Relax: They were just acting out the scene from a twenty year old movie.

I hope you guys get to experience what it's like for people to hope you fail as bad you y'all want Jackson to fail. A marching band in one high school (I don't even know what part of town it's in) is responsible for what happened in Brookhaven. It's like you think the rest of us were consulted before it happened. Why do you have to throw stones at everyone who lives in the city limits? Wait, I know why. It's because you think it's okay to judge a majority black city by its worst citizens.

12:33, facts are facts.....

It's apparent you don't follow the early morning, 6:00 pm and 10:00 pm news or read the Clarion Liar's buried stories of all the crime overnight.

Pull your head out of your butt and quit ignoring, making excuses for what is happening in Jackson and most all other Dim-O-Krat controlled cities.

Another thing, people don't have to wish Jackson to fail, it has already failed S4B's......and its all on the citizens of Jackson. Something must be wrong or Jackson wouldn't keep coming in on the list of Worst Cities in the country and by the way, that list is complied on facts and figures generated by Jackson itself.

So just stay there in all your ignorance of "I don't even know what part of town its in", because Jackson deserves you.

“Dim-O-Krat.” I know you think you are clever, but your humor is on the 8th grade level.

And I don’t know what lists you are talking about that Jackson is on the bottom of, but for every list you find listing Jackson on the bottom, I can give you ten that have Republican-led Mississippi as the worst state. How do explain that? Liberal bias? By the way, I’m not trying to disparage my home state, but as you said, facts are facts.

I don’t know what city you are from, but please stay there. And if you ever leave the State, please tell people you I are from Arkansas.

Good Ole’ Mississippi Hate. Let’s make this a Dim-O-Krat, Re-Pub-li-KLAN issue, instead of a humanity issue. Drowning people need help. Not snarling comments from the sanctuary of your keyboard.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
