Homicide in Jackson

JPD issued the following statement. 


Jackson Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred at the corner of Green Avenue and Robinson Street.  It happened just after 7:30 am this morning.

Officers originally responded for a call of shots being fired.  When they arrived, officers found a black male lying near the corner suffering from what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds.   The victim was transported to an area hospital and in very critical condition. 

Officers learned from residents in the area that several shots were heard minutes before the victim was found.  A dark colored sedan believed to be a Nissan, was also observed leaving the area moments after although it remains unknown who occupied that vehicle.

Officers later learned that the victim had succumbed to his injuries a short time after arriving at the hospital.  The victim is believed to be in his mid-20s, however his identity has not yet been confirmed.                               

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

I bet it was done with a legally obtained firearm. This "legally" obtained firearm threat can be eliminated with more gun control legislation, thus lowering murder rates. Oh wait, that 16 y/o kid can legally obtain a firearm, it can't be a stolen or dirty gun. Wake up Mr. Mayor, most of the guns in these murders are illegally obtained through drug deals and services swaps, not legal gun dealers. Fix the issue of Judge Green letting your buddies clients off with a slap on the wrist and maybe this problem will go away.

I think Jackson is on a record pace for homicides (having a murder roughly every other day so far this year). I recently read an article in the NYT about a crime waive in Puerto Rico. Apparently, decades ago, Puerto Rico used the National Guard to quash a crime wave in San Juan. San Juan is seeking assistance from the FBI to curb the violence now.

At what point does the State of Mississippi say enough, and take over the police duties of Jackson? I suppose it would take an emergency declaration and the assistance of the Guard, the Department of Public Safety and the federal law enforcement agencies.

It seems that all arrest would need to be made by the Feds so as to avoid the corrupt and incompetent Hinds County Judicial System.

On that note, can the Governor or the Supreme Court or Legislature remove sitting judges from the bench for incompetence (like Kidd or Green)? What steps from the State level can be taken to remove RSS from office?

This is not a laughing or flippant matter.

Citizens of Jackson hear me. Vote Republican!

It is really sad when you can't stand on a corner to make a drug deal, select your next robbery victim or stand watch over your gang's territory without getting shot.


Mayor needs to enact a city law to make illegal for robbers, drug dealers, gang members, carjackers and those out on bond or parole to purchase guns or use a gun they might already have or borrowed from a homey.


Boom! Problem solved!

This is not going to get fixed until Republicans lose control of the state and federal give. Until we have some competent leaders, the pain will continue.

Does JPD have someone reading social media. Cannot believe what some of these gangsters post. Friends on FB of the two suspects in the Pastor murder should be automatically suspected in any and all crimes.

Unfortunately for the victim of todays murder, the cameras and the real time crime center weren't yet in operation to quickly call an ambulance.

A few years ago there was a move to have the State Capitol Police extend their jurisdiction to the Belhaven area. That might be something to reconsider. Their jurisdiction could over downtown through Belhaven, possibly up to Fondren. There would need to be a special state-appointed judge for is area also. Obviously, they would have to hire more officers.

You must be trolling. The Republican stronghold of Rankin county had less than 5 murders in 2018.

Chuck and his new world order is going to kill Jackson. Literally and figuratively. Ban open carry is his plan on stopping this mass killing !!!
In addition he wants these killers to talk through their issues rather than pulling a gun. Chuck has a plan for all problems. But never implements them because they are crazy. But let’s make sure the zoo issue gets attention while people are dying in record numbers. Let me help you with this one. Once the neighborhood dogs are full, your zoo problem will be done.

If my math is correct, the projection just bumped to 228.

Let’s not forget that these are the number of murders. This does not include shootings...could we even count those????

Now reports of a 3rd murder on the 16th.

Now it's up to 10. 2 dead on Teakwood. 4 in one day.

Updating my post at 12:21: : that murder occurred at 11 pm. The situation at 11 pm was 1 dead and 2 serious condition. Another has since died according to WLBT.

That's 4 dead on 1/16.

And remember, the left has revised history to blame all of Jackson's problems on white flight. You should all feel guilty for not sticking around to sacrifice your children on the altar of progressive diversity.

I don't even care how often they kill each other as long as they stay on their side of the river. I don't go into Jackson after the sun goes down. My concern is how often they come to our safe towns where we shop and eat and live

When they come here to commit crimes and then they get caught because we watch them. It's averaging three times a week now that they steal and run. It's very troubling to be out in Flowood with my children and the police chase them back to their city.

Its those damn too young to drive kids sporting around "military-grade firearms" ever since Open Carry green-lighted them to do so. Or so Antar says.

5:33AM is right

Jacksonians and want to cry racial profiling and prejudice but when many of them come to visit our neighborhoods they don't know how to act. You can act as ignorant as you want on the other side of the Pearl River. But when you cross into Rankin County it is like you are visiting our home. And there are plebty of law abiding black citizens of Rankin County who would appreciate your civil obedience ad well. When you act a fool it reflects poorly on them in many ways. We will welcome you but please act right and then get back home safely. That's for both our sake.

Some bloggers here should be ashamed. Your efforts to be funny and to mock and to trivialize this murder (and every other metro Jackson homicide) as if this were a game show are vile and repulsive. Who the hell says "Next" or "Toss and Turn" or refers to a "butcher bill", or "their side of the river", etc. when human lives and families and our community are being devastated? What goes on in your dark hearts and sick minds? Look inside yourself. You are not funny. You are not amusing. You are not contributing to society with your reckless callous comments. You need help, seriously, spiritual and medical help. I suggest you get on your knees and talk to our Creator, and then go get counseling, now.
I know the aunt of the young man who died. His mother and family are devastated. They are grieving his loss. The young man was 24 years old, native of Jackson, had gone to Provine, and was employed locally. I don't know what set this murder in motion, and I didn't know him or know whether he did right or wrong or was a good guy or a bad guy. But I do know that he is now very dead, gunned down, six shots, murdered in our community, left on the street to die, and that is very sad regardless of why it occurred. Unfortunately, he was not a member of the lucky sperm club that would have him born into the right family on the "right side of the river". Please show some respect for this man (and all other forthcoming homicide victims in our community), and show some compassion for the loving families grieving their loss. Please strive to be a part of the solution to the crime that is tearing our community apart rather than contributing to the further decay of our society with your wasteful, hateful, foolish comments.

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.

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.
