Man Shot in Brandon

The Brandon Police Department issued the following statement.

On Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 6:28 PM, the Brandon Police Department responded to a report of a shooting in a parking lot at the Chapel Ridge Apartments in Brandon, MS. Brandon officers found an adult male victim who was shot multiple times by an unknown assailant.

Early information indicates that the victim was shot with a handgun from behind as he was getting his children out of the car. A black male suspect wearing a face mask and a black jacket was seen fleeing the area immediately after the shooting.

A concerned citizen, along with responding Brandon officers, rendered medical assistance to the victim, while Rankin County Sheriff’s Deputies and K-9 unit assisted Brandon officers in searching for a suspect in the area. The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, where he remains in critical but stable condition.

Based on descriptions provided by witnesses during a neighborhood canvass, several persons matching the physical and clothing descriptions were stopped and identified in the immediate area. Two wanted persons were taken into custody on unrelated arrest warrants during this search.

Brandon Police detectives continue to speak with potential witnesses and gather additional information in order to identify the suspect, who endangered the lives of neighbors in the area as well as the victim’s small children who were present during the shooting but were not harmed. The Brandon Police Department does not identify the victims of violent crimes.

Anyone with information on the person responsible for this crime is urged to contact the Brandon Police Department.

Rankin county is no longer safe. Crime is shifting from Madison to Rankin. Hate to see this happen

11:07 - You do realize the proximity of Niknar to Noskcaj, do you not?

When was the last time there was a shooting in Madison?

Thanks to HUD. The Federal government helps make sure that there are no barriers between safe and unsafe neighborhood. Like all socialist programs, it works better at lowering the standard for all, as opposed to raising it.

This isn't even a racial problem, it's a trash problem. Trash tends to attract more trash. And if you hand out free housing to trash, it's going to collect on your streets.

Rankin County is still safe. Fantastic law enforcement and Rankin County Judges and Juries put criminals away. No catach and release. We just have to work on keeping the undesirables on their side of the river.

11.07: While I agree with your post, the difference is that if found, this guy will be locked up for a long time. This is the point in this whole thing where ole Barney Fife was correct. You have to "nip it" before it becomes a revolving door of repeat offenders. Judges will not let this guy off easy.

methinks this reads like revenge or money.

This is why our legislature did the right thing passing constitutional carry. People need to stop acting like everyone who open carries is a nut and start open carrying their own and practice better situational awareness.

Just because things haven't gotten as bad here yet, don't get compacent. Besides the cmdomestic ceiminal element, we now have our new immigrants are accustomed to the upper classes back in the old country having walls, bars, and guards. Who here has any of that? It's up to us to defend ourselves and our families.

Yu dont have to be a victim. Stand your ground.

Please keep these thugs out of Jackson. Thank you.

Also LOL at buddy blaming this on HUD.

Building apartments in any area (especially Hud funded) is like planting a cancer in that area. Of all the things Mayor Mary has done, good and bad, keeping apartments out of Madison is by far the best. As far Jackson, the best analogy I've heard is it's comparison to an overflowing cesspool.

Rankin County is full of trash!
'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases
My blues away
And I'll be okay
I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I've got friends in low places'

Madison, Bridgewater, Hidden Hills, Reunion, looking better every day.

Sorry, Theca, but he's right. Sadly, you know it but won't admit it.

When the feds step in and water things down to average or less, what we wind up with is.....average or lower. This regards housing, education, jobs, you name it. Everything needs to be bland and brown and average. I believe that's the ultimate goal of socialism as well.

Hermit King for the win!

And they'll never catch the person. Having judges automatically finding people guilty and never once questioning officers' version of events and prosecutors taking officers' version as gospel (despite the large leaps of faith that can sometimes entail) leave a LE agency with the sense that they are always right and no need to do things like actual police work. So when a crime occurs that isn't immediately solvable, i.e. drug sale video, assault by husband on wife, etc., they are helpless. Case in point. The convenience store owner murdered in December of 2016. Not even a single "person of interest". Running kangaroo courts make for good fine assessments and good press releases, but do a great disservice to actual police work.

listen up folks , the hermit king at 5:16 gets it right.

Hermit King said...

The indictment process typically requires that the DA present the evidence before a grand jury. Now, you can argue that the Grand Jury would indict a ham sandwich for the DA, but there are plenty of cases that come back NO BILL. Meaning the evidence was insufficient to even bring a case forward.

This process can be interrupted if a defendant decides to take a plea guilty.

Our criminal justice system does have flaws. But I guarantee that Rankin County isn't operating like the court in My Cousin Vinny and it also isn't a Soviet style kangaroo court.

The real world is not a Howard Zinn propaganda text. And you don't get to play the heroic activist.

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.
