Barber Shop Owner Killed

JPD issued the following statement.

Jackson Police are investigating a fatal shooting on Bullard Street

Shortly after 1:00pm officers responded to a business in the 3900 block. When they arrived, officers found a black male sitting inside a vehicle suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.  He was later pronounced deceased at the scene. 

Officers learned from witness account that four armed black males in a dark sedan approached the victim. Shots were fired and the suspects, who were wearing clown face coverings, fled scene in an unknown direction of travel. 

The victim is identified as 41-year-old, Marcus Hamblin.  There is no motive at this time. 

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS(8477).  

Kingfish note: The murder took place in front of Hamblin's barber shop.  Hinds County deputies busted him at his barber shop in 2015.  The shooters wore clown masks.

"3900 block" of where? Bullard Street I presume.

Image is scrambled.

76th Homicide of the year, but who's counting?

Isn’t there a state law against wearing masks?

I guess if you are a Jackson resident or member of ANTIFI it doesn’t apply...

I have to agree with Councilman Stokes. There needs to be restrictions on firearms in the metro area. You have shops in Rankin County selling machine guns and military grade weapons that make there way into the streets of Jackson. This is a social justice issue. Are young people are being slaughtered by guns from Pearl, Brandon, and Flowood.

Busted him? For what? Where's the story? Whatever that linked file is won't pull up.

Where can I get a clown mask? I'd rather not drive all the way to city hall. Thanks.

06/2015 WLBT Police Spokesperson Othor Cain said Marcus Hamblin, 37, is charged with one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and two counts of possession of a controlled substance while in possession of a firearm. The arrest comes as part of a months-long investigation and drug bust at Cut City on Bullard Street.

There's more to this shooting than is being reported. 2015 felony arrests, 2018 back in "business"? Competition? Drugs/cash robbery? Informant? Street justice meted out after failure of courts to keep him behind bars?
As ye reap...

Wasn't there a strange crime at a barbershop on Woodrow Wilson in the past three years?

76th homicide for the year, but this falls into the sub-category of planned and targeted gangland-style shootings. Pretty insane.

FALSE. Fake Comment.

@5:32AM = liar, liar, pants on fire. NO ONE is selling MACHINE GUNS, nor MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS!

If you are referring to AR-15 style rifles, they ARE NOT MACHINE GUNS; THEY ARE NO "MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS," and they certainly ARE NOT "ASSAULT RIFLES."

You have been drinking the Schumer, Bloomberg, Soros, Pelosi kool-aid. Pease, move to Kalifornia where you can participate in group hugs in comfort rooms while holding a teddy bear.

Bless your heart.

The only way a bad story like this would be better is to hear that the 4 perps were removed from earth the same day.

The vast majority of shootings and murders in Jackson are a result of either the drug culture or domestic violence. Stay out of the drug business and keep your spousal relationship at peace and you will likely not have to worry about crime in Jackson.

It really is that simple.

But Mississippi has a gun homicide problem as a collective.

If you look at the size of this state and the number of gun homicides that happen across it, our gun homicide rate is very high.

I remember going to "Pat's Barber" in the 1960"s at Westland Plaza. Pat gave the kids a penny to put in his gumball machine after he cut your hair. He was really nice. Don't remember any shootings at Pat's.

Yall can argue all your little facts you memorize reading about guns to compensate for Yall's shortcomings, but a Camry is still a car even if it don't go as fast as a Corvette. You can say what you want people know you are scared little men hiding behind big black guns.

Anonymous said...

The fact that a Camry is a car does not make an AR-15 a machine gun nor a military grade weapon. Yes, a Camry is a car, but it is not a sports car. And, yes, an AR-15 is a gun, but it is not a machine gun nor is it a military grade weapon. Your basic understanding of facts is the only shortcoming that needs compensation, but I am not sure you have to proper equipment to remedy the problem.

You can buy an AR15 and have a machine gun in 20 minutes with a Google search and some tin snips.

You meant to say "you can buy an AR-15 and ruin a 100 dollar trigger group in 20 minutes with a Google search and a pair of tin snips."

Unless you are a trained gunsmith.

But I would imagine reality doesn't fit your narrative.

a knife is a military-grade weapon. what's the point to that description?

@2:34 PM - I can turn a Chevrolet Silverado pickup into a weapon of mass destruction by filling the tank and turning the key.

Are you still in your mommy's basement? Did you do your chores yet? Did your mommy stop breast feeding you too soon? Carry on with the thumb sucking, snowflake.

You hillbillies are so ignorant. A Lightning Link is a type of drop in auto-seer marketed prior to the 1986 ban. It's basically sheet metal stamped in a certain shape that makes an AR15 full auto. Since it is $20,000 for a legally transferable auto-seer, people illegally make them out of sheet metal. Google it dumbasses. criminals don't care about NFA rules. Nothing stopping them from chopping you all to pieces with full auto machine gun fire using the dimensions on Google Image Search.

"Perception of Crime"

Go Read Some Books said...

Criminals will use whatever powerful weapons are available. In the early 20th Century, gangsters preferred the military grade Thompson Submachine gun and Browning Automatic rifle. Eventually the slaughter because to great and they were restricted. In the 1980s open-bolt submachine guns that were easy to convert to full auto were targeted. You couldn't buy a new MAC-10, TEC-9, or UZI with an open bolt.

Now it is time to address the AR-15. It is far to easy to convert to full auto. As we all became shockingly aware, the AR15 goes full auto so easy that a technique called "bump-fire" is possible. There is even a story of a man having to defend himself in a court of law when his semi-auto AR15 went burst fire at a shooting range.

P. B. Floyd said...

What's all the chatter about machine guns? How many homicides in Jackson have been carried out with a machine gun in the past thirty years? 99% of the thugs in Jackson spent a hundred and twenty six bucks at Academy on a 'special' they can hold sideways with one hand.

Jacktown has very few social justice warriors in trench coats and fedoras leaning out the window of a 1930 Packard.

@4:53 PM Please cite one incident, just one, where a Miss. criminal has made this conversion and committed a crime with said weapon.

Standing by.


Move to Kalifornia, you commie pinko dumbocrat.

I will let you know as soon as JJ and the media report on weapon type, caliber, and rate of fire. Closest we ever get is an evidence photo with little or no description.

Nice try moving the goal post though. It's okay to admit you are clueless about drop in auto seers or firearms history in general. Bet you didn't even know the guy that designed the Armalite Rifle action was named Eugene Stoner. His design is deadly genius, no doubt.

I believe that AR style rifles in their current form should be NFA items since they are so easily used as machine guns. Whether it be a drop in auto seer or simply bump-fire.

The victim has apparently been living on the razor's edge for years. Reap what you sow.

The deceased denies the allegation and defies the alligator! But he got wasted anyway.

Many semi-automatic firearms can rather easily converted to automatic fire with a file or grinder, and the way they work is usually simple enough to figure out for the average person. It's not that hard. Doing so, of course, is against the law. In fact, simply having a legal AR and the components to switch it to automatic fire on the same premises has led to successful prosecutions in the past several times, this was one of the main reasons for the ATF raid on the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, TX.

I just watched an episode of Mayberry, a favorite pastime of mine. Not once has anything like this happened around Floyd's barber shop. The only thing Floyd ever sold was blue toilet water.

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.
