Jackson Crime Update

JPD issued the following statements.

Woody Drive Shooting

Officers responded to the hospital where they found a 38 year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound the lower part of his body.  The victim told officers that two armed black males attempted to rob him after he exited his vehicle in the 300 block of Woody Drive. 

The victim’s injury is not life-threatening.  There is still no additional information regarding the identity of the suspects. 

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

Lindbergh Drive Shooting

Jackson Police are investigating an early morning shooting.  It happened just  before 1:00 am.

Officers responded to an apartment complex located in the 800 block of Lindbergh Drive.  When they arrived, officers found a 37 year-old female suffering from wounds to the leg and hand.  Officers later learned that the shooting stemmed from an argument between a female suspect and the victim.  The victim was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The suspect, identified as  27 year-old, Tammie McCullar, was later taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault.

McCullar is current awaiting her initial court appearance. 
Greenway Drive Homicide

The victim fatally shot on Greenway Drive is identified as 54 year-old, Eduardo Molina, of Texas.  Molina’s vehicle  (2008 Chevrolet 3500 truck) was recovered on yesterday morning after being found abandoned in the 400 block of Mount Vernon Road.

Based on video surveillance, at least four individuals are believed to have occupied the suspect vehicle prior to the shooting.  The vehicle is a small, silver 4-door sedan, believed to be a Nissan and with a missing front, right hub cap.

Anyone with information about this fatal shooting is urged to call Crime Stopper at 601-355-TIPS(8477).  A reward of up to $2500 is available if that information leads to an arrest.

I don't understand why the Greenway Drive incident has not gotten more coverage.

Unless I am uninformed, this guy was here from out of town and got murdered. Maybe it was a bad drug deal, but killing visitors should justify a full court press from the PD and the city.

10:27, you really think Hizzhonor Mayor Chokeme and his people are going to react to an out-of-towner getting killed over and above Jacksonians that have been murdered? That wouldn't be smart.

Regarding the Greenway Drive murder, I feel sorry for folks from out of town that decided to stop in Jackson that don't know the lay of the land. There is not one safe area on either I-20 or I-55 within the Jackson city limits to stop and get gas, get something to eat, or stay overnight in a hotel. Folks passing thru that do stop are literally risking their lives if they do. What a sad state of affairs!

I do perceive a perception of crime.

You are quite the drama queen. What an absolutely ridiculous comment that does not even justify a response.

11:30 AM: Your one word is so telling. You are a despicable human being - Sitting there trolling and awaiting something you deem more newsworthy and fulfilling, most likely someone's downfall. These crimes are serious matters. Lives have been lost. People are grieving.

Dang! Thanks for the info 11:54. As a longtime resident of Jackson, I've been buying gas, and eating at restaursnts, all over I55 north. (Haven't had a need for a hotel room, guess I just haven't been lucky on that front as I have been to survive the filling up of my belly and my car.)

11:30’s reference went completely over 12:39’s head. Do try to keep up.

Nope, 11:30/4:19. I do keep up here and stand by the comment at 12:39.

In Remembrance of The Fisherman said...

People traveling through Jackson simply have no clue. Stopping anywhere could spell trouble. And, no, that is NOT the same as stopping anywhere in Vicksburg, Clinton, Madison, Flora, Byram, Brandon or Pearl.

I still shake my head over the unfortunate bass fisherman, here for a national tournament during the admin of Chokwe, the elder. Murdered outside his Motel Six room on I-55 when he saw some thug rifling through his bass boat. Nobody told him to NOT get a room in Jackson. Chokwe never brought it up an neither he nor his police chief bothered to communicate with the tournament and certainly should have attended the prayer at the opening ceremony two days later at the Reservoir.

The tournament opening ceremony at that event started with a prayer service in remembrance of the slain participant. Noticeably absent? Anybody representing the city of Jackson.

Had this man been a black man here for a civil rights meeting, Obama would have flown in Justice Department officials to gather on the steps with Chokwe.

As is always the case, any mention of this will be slammed by the Kingfish radar monitor.

11:54 is not a drama queen. I feel the same way and have lived in these parts for decades. Those of us who live in the area are risking it. Add an out of state tag and you almost double your risk.

When was the last time you felt like you really needed to be 'aware of your surroundings' if stopping for dinner in Madison, Flowood, Flora, Pocahontas or Brandon?

I agree with drama queen.

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.
