Fatal Shooting on Fontaine Ave.

JPD issued the following statement. 

Jackson Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Fontaine Avenue.  It happened just after 5:00 pm this evening. 

Officers responded to the 3600 block where they found a black male suffering from multiple gunshot injuries.  He was later pronounced deceased. 

Officers also located a second black male who is currently being treated for injuries at a local hospital and is potentially a suspect in the shooting.  The extent of those injuries are unknown. 

The victim has since been identified as 39-year-old, Rastafarian Beasley.  A motive is still not known.  No arrests have yet been made.

So how many does this make?

It's suspected that a disagreement led to these shootings.

How many does this make . . .'this week'.

BTW, is the water still off in Fondren, Belhaven and the new area called 'Mid-town' ?

This is just "the perception of crime." Nothing to see here, move along.

For what its worth, Fontaine Ave. and Fontaine Dr. are not one and the same. Fontaine Ave. is South of Northside almost to Livingston Rd.

In some ways I feel bad for Lucky Town Brewery that is in "Mid-town", but on the other hand I wonder how anyone's business plan that relies so much on water would be in Jackson to begin with.

What? You don't like your beer brewed with silt and lead?

The victim is deceased at the present time.

Why pay taxes in Jackson? Why pay a water bill in Jackson? Why submit yourself to incompetent leadership? Why submit yourself to an unjust legal system that minimizes punishment? Still can’t understand why the State hasn’t taken over this disaster.

I live in Belhaven and I have had continuous water. The assumption that water has been shut off to Belhaven, Fondren and Midtown is fake news

Not sure how we got from a shooting to beer, but sounds like a competitor of
Luckytown beer is posting here. The beer brewing prior to the water main break has no problem and the beer started after repair of the break will have no problem. So why the slam unless you have something to gain from such a slam.

Where is the Outrage from Jackson Residents, Media outlets, Mayor, etc. Is life in Jackson worth anything?

It's truly sad that so many young men are murdered in this town. Just as sad is the "ho-hum" attitude of everyone, from the media to the community to the city government.

Another day, another black man murdered by a black man. The yawns are deafening.

Now, had the assailant been a white guy who attended a "segregation academy"...

It's not clear at this time what the relationship between suspect and victim was but has been rumored the suspect did not like the victim very much.

I can understand being poor and getting stuck in South Jackson, but I can never figure out why rich folks choose to live in Belhaven, Fondren, etc.

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
