Active Shooter at UMMC. UPDATE: ALL CLEAR!!!

UPDATE (5:41 PM): UMMC students and employees can cross North State Street to go to parking lot.  NSS still blocked off.   Per Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey, JPD is searching for two suspects. Black males. 

There was no active shooter at UMMC itself.  The shooting took place on the street in front of garage. Echoes made it sound as if it took place in garage.  Not that it makes much difference if you are actually at UMMC.  

UPDATE (5:10 PM): ALL CLEAR bulletin issued.  SEARCH FOR SUSPECT UNDERWAY.  SUSPECT VEHICLE IS A BLACK NISSAN ALTIMA with a CANNON NISSAN PAPER TAG. 

Parking garage B. This is NOT a drill!!!!!  UMMC just sent out the following text messages:

"Active shooter at Parking Garage B. This is not a drill. RUN to safety.  HIDE in a locked room. FIGHT as a last resort and only when your life is in danger. All individuals off campus are to stay away. Campus police are responding.  Follow instructions from law enforcement. Standby for more information.
There was a shooting at Woodrow Wilson and North State Street.  Mother with baby fled into garage.  Baby was apparently hit.  Witness said it was between 10 and 12 shots.  Lady came to ER at UMMC.  Her child was shot in chest.  She was sitting at intersection.  Black car was chased into the parking garage between Levels B and C.

There were apparently two children shot. One child was shot in arm, one was shot in abdomen.  They are in STABLE condition. Children are a 15 month old female and three-year old male.  Mother told police a car pulled up next to her's and someone shot into the car.

So glad I left UMMC, then Mississippi altogether. Hopeless.

No hate allowed today said...

Leave you hate Jackson and Hate Mississippi comments behind. There were two small children shot. There’s no room for your wickedness.

Knock the tribalism crap off. Not approving the comments.

My daughter is a Nurse at UMMC and she said that it was chaos. People were terrified that there was an active shooter roaming the grounds. The person that did this is an animal. The children and their mother were most likely his targets. This is a person known to the family. He needs to be found and moved away from civilized society.

Prayers for these two babies. What a horrible thing to happen to anyone, let alone small children. A chest wound? Very painful and hard to repair. Idiots with guns need to be put under the jail. I am sick of shootings! Just plain out wrong and needs stiff punishment and never bond. Please Hinds County DA's office and Judges, stop this stuff. It does not matter if you think they can be rehabilitated. Let the criminals stay in jail for at least what the law allows.

One more reason to get every single gun off our streets. I've been praying all evening for those poor children.

Probably going to be either one of Phil’s HB 585 boys or someone Tommie Green let back into the street. Not sure who is worse

Round up the usual suspect.

8:44, you’ll NEVER get all the guns off the streets. Banning them will only get the LEGAL ones. Those aren’t typically the folks who do drivebys.

What's so sad is all this tragic stuff happens over the Christmas season. People act like animals & where is Law & Order to protect us? Searching for the fools who hung nooses at the capitol. Why doesn't the NAACP deal with the true problem Black on Black genocide.

Honor among thieves doesn't exist anymore.

I was amazed at every law enforcement agency that responded. Everyone with a gun, badge and blue lights in this city responded.

In this day and age “gun control” is a moot question. You can print a gun on some computers. Far better to demand that people who live among others must be civilized.

Surely the mother of these victims knows who hates her enough to try to kill her children.

Civilized, responsible, rational minded, respectable gun owners don’t do this type of behavior. We know we would lose our 2nd Amendment rights. Now, there are a few who have done terrible things in the past but that is so small of a percentage. Tragic yes. Channel 3, Howard Ballou said the woman knew the person who shot into the car and it was 2 black males.

“Gun Control Impossible,” Says Only Western Nation Without Gun Control

Should be easy to identify this jagoff with paper plates which indicates a recent sale, unless the vehicle owner never got around to it over an extended period of time. I’d hate to be working at Cannon Nissan this morning.

I’m willing to bet that the shooter borrowed the vehicle.

7:16; please present a paper to the class outlining your steps to keep guns out of the hands of people like these two perps. Limit, two pages in outline form. Thanks in advance.

Did CNN or MSMBC pick this up? Didn't think so...

Anonymous said...

7:47 AM, I love it how they report on a random bus crashing in Upstate NY or whether or not Trump gets two scoops of ice cream, but a shooting of two children in front of a state hospital? Nah.

CNN is truly the enemy of the people.

The criminal injustice system hard at work. These punks don’t deserve jail.

Why is The Rankin County sheriff making the announcement?

Anonymous said...

7:47 Why would they? Kids get shot every day. Needs something extra to make it spicy.

Anyone want to bet if the perps have rap sheets that indicate they should have already been in jail ? I'll give odds !

There is a black, rather low slung car, that travels south on I55N into Jackson with a dirty Cannon Paper Tag. Gets off at Northside Dr., if I remember correctly. I thought maybe it was just being "test driven". But, of all the tags in town, this would be the easiest to duplicate and use over and over on different cars. Why even duplicate, just steal one.

The aspect of this event that brought out ALL of the local media with expanded coverage was the location causing an Active Shooter alert for UMMC. If it occurred at North West and Taylor Sts, suspect there wouldn’t have been 5 minutes of coverage.

What makes this shooting any different than the hundreds of others that have happened lately? We have seen kids shot, some killed, and it barely made the news.

I was there. Police response was... poor and endangering to the public. UMMC response was by the book, but the book doesn't address the situation, and therefore the UMMC response was mostly useless.

Did the police check with Cannon dealership to see who had bought a black Nissan sedan recently?

@11:57am Did you come up with that after watching CSI Miami or Law and Order? Could our police be better? Yes. Are they farking morons? No.

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
