Driver in Walmart Shooting is Killer Blessed by Green (Updated)

Update: Paul Barnett arrested for shooting firearm at Walmart. See below.

The Madison Police Department issued the following statement and mug shots about a shooting that took place at Walmart on Grandview Boulevard tonight.



However, this is not Coleman's first brush with the law.  WLBT reported in 2008:

A 21-year old accused of murdering a Jackson man nearly two months ago is now behind bars.  Investigators with the Mississippi Department of Corrections, Jackson Enforcement Team and Jackson Police Department arrested Conerly Chapman.

He is charged with the September murder of Francios Gasnell.

Chapman also faces charges of aggravated assault and strong armed robbery.  Those charges stem from the attack and robbery of a senior woman in the parking lot of Kroger on I-55 back in June 2007.
Chapman is being held at the Hinds County Detention Center.  No bond has been set.
What happened to the case? It was assigned to Hinds County Circuit Judge Tomie Green. A grand jury indicted him for murder in 2017.  He was represented by now-Circuit Judge Faye Peterson. He pleaded guilty on March 2, 2010 to manslaughter.  Judge Green sentenced him to serve 20  years in prison but suspended 6 years of the sentence. He apparently violated probation several times from 2017 to 2019 but the adjudication of those violations is not yet known.

Update (2/21/20, 9:00 AM): The third suspect is Paul Barnett.

These yutes never learn that there are no blessings tendered in Madison Co. Great work by MPD and the Walmart loss prevention officers.

I hate to see Madison getting so rough these days. Who would’ve thought adding a Walmart surrounded by a plethora of chains and big box stores would lead to having unwanted visitors....

Wife and I use this Walmart regularly and I'm "packing' every time. Never had any issues but just cruising the parking lot will explain why.

I'm so sick of judge Green... I live in northeast Jackson and her voters in that area of town are total idiots obviously. She needs to be removed from office for endangering the public. She's a huge liability

Madison is gone to hell. Time to move to Pearl I guess.

Which precincts in NE Jackson vote for Circuit D2? If you live in NE Jackson truly you can answer the question.

thugs leave jackson? huh. who would have thought that? i thought there was some sort of magic boundary called “the county line” that kept them away.

7:01 - Pearl is no better. Wendy's employees are stabbing and killing one another !

Crime will be everywhere...but when you try it in areas like Madison more often than not you are going to get caught arrested tried and sentenced.

There is hope for Hinds County...nothing left that the thugs want so go to surrounding counties and let them lock up the garbage Judge Green recycles. Seriously, when will the Chief Justice do something about the courts in Hinds County?

Police need to search local gun records for an ATF Form 4473 to see if she bought the gun for him.

The ATF really needs prosecute the crime of straw purchasing firearms for felons. Doesn't matter if they are shacking up. He used it in a crime.

8:13, you know there's no 4473 for that pistol, he bought/borrowed/stole it from somewhere.

ANYBODY can have 4000 FB friends, even you. Truly funny to see those that claim 4000-4999 friends.

Madison’s & Ridgeland’s lust for low income shoppers, Madison’s big box & not to be denied Ridgeland’s new big box will only increase an undesirable criminal element into these suburban heavens. The once peaceful, safe communities will only deteriorate as selfish elected officials line their pockets. It is really hard to believe voters let a smiley, glad handshake blind their vote. How many times have you voted & look around to see so many that probably know nothing about the ones in whom they are voting. What adds insult to this injury is that these elected officials give non residents tax breaks to put resident tax paying businesses out of business.

It's common to see couples like these two at gun counters all the time. He's quietly picking out the pistol and she's filling out the form.

This is why I have 0 compassion for Jackson...they consistently vote for their own demise.

Why are they stupid enough to come into Madison County and do this stuff? Each time will bring the same result....jail. Absolutely STUPID!

Tomie ain't in chaggg this time.

There won't be any blessings. Maybe a nice repeat offender status for this shit eater.

Looks like I’ll be navigating the flooded parking lot at Kroger’s on 51. I’m not familiar with Costco, but it may be worth taking a look.

It seems to me that since the city fathers of Jackson’s suburbs, Ridgeland/Madison, would join forces to become the 4th or 5th largest city in MS. Both r very similar. Both with their big box wholesalers to draw in regional shoppers. Of course, with this comes additional crime. A joint city could offer an enhanced police department for the protection of its citizens. Since they have become regional big box wholesalers, maybe being joined the could offer something for the arts, a cultural center. It would be better situated to house a convention center hotel which is much needed for MS.
It further seems to me if Jackson can support a black history museum & a Muslim cultural center, Madrid could support a more inclusive arts center that would be for all Mississippians.

When I heard about this I just assumed it was some out-of-state criminal driving up or down I-55 and thought it looked like a soft target. Anyone from the metro area should know better than to try this in Madison. Hell, I can pull over and look suspicious in Madison and I'll have 2-3 patrol cars behind me in a matter of minutes. I guess this is your brain on drugs.

Repeat offender status is always,always dropped in the plea deal. It might as well not even exist in MS.

PittPanther said...

Madison, you brought this on yourself. You poach major stores from Jackson, then you get the same criminals that used to operate in Jackson. Talk enjoy that Deal with the Devil.

Now Madison has gone to hell. Looks like I need to move now. This is sad! Who would’ve known, now whites are killing one another.

How is this Judge Green’s fault? I get so tired of the “Jackson is dying...waaah waaah waaah”... “Judge Green Gabe him a blessing... waaah waaah”..... Judge Green rarely deviates from the sentencing recommendation.by the DA’s office. The burden of price lands on the state and if they don’t have a good case they offer better plea deals... if they have an open and shut slam dunk case then plea offer is worse for defendant. It’s the way it works. In every courtroom. Even in Rankin and Madison counties.

Kingfish said...

Nice try. It is common practice for DA to not make any sentencing recommendations in judge green's court. Most pleas are open.

Costco won’t bring in the same trash most box stores do. It is a membership club that has mostly business customers.

Right, 9:39. Same way Sam's was designed. Enter one now and check out the bidness customers.

The online application process is open to anybody. Check it out.
Same annual fee process as Wal Mart Sams Club. Only half a month left before you can get your sixty-roll pack of squeezable Charmin and 28 packaged hot dogs.

Anonymous said...

Kingfish at 3:53....This is easily solvable. Was his case an open plea or with recommendation from the DA.

What non-lawyers don’t understand is that more times than not JPD screws up the investigation. Weak or faulty investigations lead to acquittals or light plea deals (in order to get some conviction).

Judge Greenn is a dam idiot. He will serve the rest of his life in Madison. Bam great job

10:02 you right about that. It’s a damn shame the way that went. But HER best friends are the richest in mad town.

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.
