Shootout in Brandon

Correction: The original press release reported the incident began in Pearl.  The address is in Brandon. 

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement.


On Friday, July 17th, 2020, the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department received calls of shots fired in the area of Donnell Dr., Brandon, Mississippi. When deputies arrived they were told that there was a drive by shooting where multiple shots were fired at a residence and that multiple shots were fired in return. A BOLO was put out for the vehicles that the people on scene were able to identify. Shortly thereafter, Brandon Police Department was able to locate one of the vehicles on Crossgates Blvd near the intersection of Highway 80. Brandon officers observed a deceased black male in the back seat that had died from what appeared to be a gunshot wound. The driver, who witnesses say tried to take another citizen’s car when his broke down, was detained and taken to the hospital to be checked out. Multiple suspects are being detained for questioning at this time as the investigation is still ongoing.

Probable update:

The vehicle stopped by Brandon Police, occupied by Jackson residents, was en route back to Jackson when stopped.

The deceased resides at xxx Xxxxxx Street, Jackson, and the driver who tried to jack another car also lives in Jackson, address unknown at this time.

Next.

Terrible how crossgates area apartments and some older streets have really changed. Renters renters renters. A house across the street from me has 2 guys around 30 years old moved in weekend of July 4th already the cops were there Monday evening doing what I don't know but they are playing loud music and guys come over late for card games it appears. Roucious crown bumping music 10 pm driving in neighborhood. I've lived here 15 years.

I don’t think Brandon is on the way back to Jackson from Pearl.

8:42 - maybe, but isn't Brandon east of Pearl, so they wouldn't have been going to Jackson.

So, the occupants in the car received the bad end of this drive by instead of some innocent kid at the house. Some people would say justice has been served.

They did a drive by in a car that broke down. Brilliant

When somebody does a drive by and the residents return fire, they either knew you were coming, or you are in Pearl.

The Democrat leftist cancer spreads...and its only gong to get worse.

Just the innocent children catching stray bullets in Democrat leftist controlled cities should have us melting down but our so-called leaders walk on eggs with deafening silence.

Speaking of so-called leaders…

curious to know what the MULTI 6 FIGURE INCOME PREACHERS running mega churches in the suburbs are saying on Sunday morning about innocent children being slaughtered with stray bullets by leftist thugs in these Democrat controlled war zones?

What would Jesus do?

Not sure but betting he would be spreading the word on how Democrat leftism destroys communities...

and seriously doubt he would have been worried at all about losing the churches tax exempt status.

You all in Rankin and madison counties are not immune from this type of culture. As I said before, it’s coming your way. Hinds isn’t the only bad place. Everywhere has bad people. We just can’t keep them contained and with the world turning upside down like we have seen recently there will be more reason to protect yourself. As the world gets worse, the bad people get even worse. Their true colors come out and that’s not sugar coating it. Hell, you can live in a gated neighborhood and the bad people will find a way to get in. On top of that, they want to get closer and closer and edge out the nice areas and neighborhoods so they don’t feel downtrodden. Suffice to say, 15 years is the max you can live in your home before you and your neighbors start getting influxes with bad people moving in....just trying to move up is what they call it but when they don’t take care of their property then values go down. Then prices plummet. Then it all begins again. It’s called social engineering according to the past president

The shootout happened out between Brandon and Florence near Vans deer processing. It appears the drive by shooters got what they deserved. Looks like they were trying to make it to the hospital on Crossgates Blvd....cane up short by about 200 yards when the car ran out of gas....almost made it. The driver tried to jack another car unsuccessfully at which point the cops were on scene.

I passed by the car during investigation. It was a brand new Chevy Malibu with Georgia playes. The deceased was laying across the back seat. The driver was apprehended right behind Polks drugs.

Another story of when keeping it real goes wrong.

Jackson Hood rats moving to easy pickin in the burbs.
But, in Brandon the court system won't give them a get of jail card.

The way to keep your neighbhood nice is to include "no rentals" in the covenants. Works great; lasts a long time.

Anonymous said...

“Easy pickin?” This one seems not so easy for some reason. Say what you will about Rankin County, but if the residents don’t get you the justice system will.

Anonymous said...

From what I gather from the information given. The driver was trying to get his
wounded passenger to the hospital on Crossgates Blvd. The passenger died from his wounds. The driver then tried to carjack someone and failed. Luckily Brandon PD picked up the driver before he could try and carjack someone else. This BS needs to stop. The dregs of Jackson are moving into the suburbs. Time we all arm up. As Radio Strongman Kim Wade says "Better strap down in Jacktown"

To all new AR15 owners. I have observed many of you fiddling with your weapons at the range like amateurs. The proper weapons readiness is for you to have the Bolt Carrier locked open, dust cover shut. And then have a full magazine in place. SAFE/FIRE can be set at your discretion.

When you need do defend yourself you simply tap the bold release on the left side of your weapon and the BCG will snap shut, loading a round and popping the dust cover open.

You will be weapons hot and will not have to fool with the ridiculous charging handle during a self defense situation. Remember to aim for center mass and do not hold your breath while squeezing the trigger.

12:21, you are a big talker but to react to a drive by you better have that AR in your rocking chair with you.

Frank Griffin said...

I suspect that most assault rifle owners either have small weenies (men) or are unshaven (women).

Just get a shotgun. If you get a sidearm, be sure to use safety bullets to decrease the chance that you will kill a family member or pet by accident.

Reminder: the chances of whites getting killed by blacks are miniscule. Calm the fuck down.

Used to live in the apartments on the other end of Crossgates Blvd. The apartments sucked but was a real nice area. Guess not anymore.

@ 3:54
The crossgates area is really aging and renters are popping up all over. Not sure we can do anything about it at this point. Probably 30% of houses in my crossgates area are renters. Yes, music is super loud and it drives me crazy to see grills in front driveways rather than backyard. People all over the grilling area music etc... b randon pd won't show for those calls. Not sure it's illegal anyway.

Your trolling is a little too obvious. Not nearly as clever as one might think.

@5:55, I thought he was pretty clever. Guess its all a matter of perspective and opinions.

Thanks 10:37 for informing us what the post, nor any other information has bothered to tell us yet. Glad to know that you are informed enough to tell us that these folks (the ones in the car, I presume, or are you referring to the ones that shot back) are "Jackson Hood Rats".

I don't disagree that there are plenty of Jackson residents that could easily have been in this shootout ----------but I'll be damned if I believe that there aren't folks in Rankin, Niknar, or anywhere in between that aren't just as capable of being involved in this little altercation.

If you don't mind, please let us know the names and addresses of these "Jackson Hood Rats" so that the information you have (obviously from an inside source; we know you wouldn't have made this comment up out of whole cloth) can be shared with many that would love to know it.

I know how this stuff happens. The other day, a neighbor waved as they drove past, and I quickly waved back. It's sort of automatic.

Hey Frank,

From your comment I can deduce that you know absolutely nothing about weapons. WTF are “safety rounds” anyway?

Slab Daddy said...

The lack of anyone taking the bait proves 5:55 is absolutely correct.

I'm not Frank but I am a known it all. Frangible rounds have existed since at least 1977.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glaser_Safety_Slug

Still deadly on woft tissue but doesnt penetrate walls.

Anonymous said...

Wow. 9:18 you too know nothing about AMMO. Glasper Safety Slugs were advertised to be used where low penetration was recommended. Super fast, super lightweight rounds. Impressive on bare ballistic gel but totally worthless on anything heavier than a leather coat. There are frangible rounds out there now, mostly to be used in shoot house to reduce frag. Not very effective against personnel. You see, there are great rounds designed for very specific purposes but what you should carry are rounds that will work for as many situations as possible. See the FBI AMMO protocols.

Here’s a quick lesson from an old white guy before society goes completely to hell. Don’t do a drive-by shooting down a dead-end road. You will have to turn around and come back by who you just shot at and will probably get killed. It’s the details, folks.

Donnell runs off Greenfield circle and is off hwy 468. It is county so hopefully justice and NO BAIL.

Why not just carry with the bolt forward, one in the pipe and the safety on? Flipping the safety off is just as easy as slapping the bolt release, plus you don't have to worry about a jam or the bolt not going all the way forward.

Doesn't have anything to do with being a Democrat. As if things don't happen in subdivisions where there are homeowners. Why does there have to be so many smart alecks? Stop stereotyping people.

Kingfish rarely approves comments that identify the race or racial characteristics of criminals in the metro. And since Jackson is a democrat stronghold, criminals simply become democrat.

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.
