JPD issued the following statement.

Jackson Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the 800 block of Powell Rhodes Drive. It happened just before 2:00 pm this afternoon.

Officers responded to a residence there for an unknown trouble. When they arrived, officers found an unresponsive male lying on the porch and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was later pronounced deceased at the scene.

His injuries are believed to have occurred on Powell Rhodes Drive and his current condition is critical but stable. A third male had also surrendered himself to police, in connection with the shooting and a firearm was recovered.

The hospitalized victim is a 42 year-old black male and his involvement, if any, with the incident is not yet known.

The deceased is a 39 year-old black male, however, his name is not yet being released pending notification of the family.

This investigation is ongoing.

I've watched every Mayberry episode at least four times and have never, ever heard Barney cite an 'unknown trouble' code.

i googled and cant find the high water mark in 1995. Does anybody know that number?

38/19 weeks into 2019 = 2 per week x 52 = 104 for 2019 and that doesn't allow for a spike when summer heat arrives. This has gotten way out of hand. So sad for all of us.

I perceive that it's going to be a long hot summer.

Another person was run over and killed yesterday. Maybe an accident/no bad intent, but another homicide nonetheless.

There were 20,000 more people in Jackson in 1995 so per capita it's going to be much worse this year. It sure seems like there are a lot less people in Jackson now, I'm surprised it was only 20K less per CityData.

Jackson’s image to the nation.

Quick, somebody post the per capita murder rates and crime statistics from the 1940's up until the 1970's. I bet it will be lower than Flowood today.

Lots of gunfire in the Jackson streets. No telling what the total number of gunshot victims are. The media only keeps count of the ones who died. Others were too fast or the shooter's bad aim saved them.

On the advice of Kim Wade, when my wife and i enter the city of Jackson we remain armed. We both wear plate carriers until we arrive at our destination. We will not allow ourselves to be victims. Many parts of Jackson are a warzone.

Sunday evening I found what appears to be either a .22 bullet hole or a buck shot hole in the sheetmetal of my vehicle. This was after entering lawless South Jackson on Mother's Day. It had to be fresh because it didn't have any rust when I discovered it.

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.
