JPD issued the following statements. 

(#1)  Officers responded to a residence located in the 1700 block just after 12:00 am.  There, officers found an unresponsive black male lying in the carport area of a residence.  The victim was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and was later pronounced deceased at the scene.

Upon further investigation, officers discovered a second black male outside an adjacent residence who was also suffering from gunshot wounds.  He was transported with what appeared to be non life-threatening injuries.  

The deceased victim has since been identified as 63 year-old, Earl Lee Clark. 

Additional information gathered later suggested that the hospitalized male is the alleged suspect.  He is a 25 year-old male and is potentially facing charges once he is released. 

Surveillance footage captured the incident, however, it is not being released.  Robbery is believed to be the motive and evidence from the scene suggested that both individuals discharged firearms during the altercation.

(#2)  The death of 28 year-old, Deshun Ferrell, has been ruled a homicide.

Ferrell was found fatally shot in the 1400 block of Ellis Avenue on April 8, 2019 and a firearm was found at the scene.  Initially, it appeared that the injury may have been self-inflicted but could not be confirmed until an autopsy was performed.

The initial and subsequent results of an autopsy were inconclusive.   Final results have now been received, determining that Ferrell’s injury was not self-inflicted.

This case is being investigated as a homicide and anyone with information that may assist is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS(8477).

But yet the only movement from Lumumba 2.0 is that the City of Jackson is "unflinchingly opposed" to the presidents ICE raids against ILLEGAL ALIENS. Mr. Mayor, with all due respect, take your head out of your ass and address real Jackson problems. The ones that your administration's legacy will be noted for. Personally I don't think he gives a shit other than stirring the race and political pot.

"Officers responded to a residence located in the 1700 block just after 12:00 am."

Well that narrows it down.

Wasn't Jokeway Lumuma Talliafero just on television last night crowing about how there had not been a murder in Jtown for the past week?

Perhaps he should make a daily annoucement.

Lots of "suffering" taking place.

And JPD, "alleged suspect" is redundant.

Anyway, this perception of crime keeps rearing its ugly head.

@8:52 AM - He actually said in the last month, and anything before then was just a perception of crime. He also implies that the only gangs are in the county lockup, not on the streets of Jacktown.

Understand, the mayor has NO answers to the deadly violence embracing Jackson.
But he does have his radical political answers to broad societal issues. He can't solve those broad societal issues either so the discussion is purely academic so let's have a dialogue...

Hot town, Summer in the city. 55 and counting -- maybe they should give an hourly forecast, like the weather...?

The citizens are very happy with how Jackson is run and those of us not living there should mind our own business.

Mayor Yammeralot said, “The presence of gangs within detention centers or prisons is certainly not a new thing. I think that they are ever present within those institutions. So, I’m not saying that we don’t have some level of gang activity in the City of Jackson, I would just say that that is anecdotal to me right now and I don’t have the data to support that.”

BULLSHIT Lumumba. Mark these words, your condescending intellectual dishonesty will be your undoing one day.

Apathy is the problem -- not the solution.

It's going to be a long, hot, summer.

Lumumbles should ask the MS Department of Corrections, FBI, ATF and state fusion center about gangs in Jackson; and what in the fuck is "that is anecdotal to me right now" supposed to mean?

Either you are running the city or not, and you have a handle on the threats and hazards to the city or you do not, you can't play stupid forever, Mr. Mayor. Simple capitulation like admitting Jackson has always had some level of gang activity isn't solving any problems. Do your f***ing job!

Chockwad is one of those pseudo intellectual types that tries to impress his citizenry with big words which they cant even understand.

Will someone PLEASE inform JPD, WLBT, WAPT, WJTV and other copy writers that there is NO such time as 12:00 AM or 12:00 PM.
There is 12:00 MIDNIGHT or 12:00 NOON.
"The 12-hour system divides the 24 hours of a day into two periods lasting 12 hours each. The first 12-hour period is designated as am. It runs from midnight to noon. The second period, marked pm, covers the 12 hours from noon to midnight.
The abbreviations am and pm derive from Latin:
AM = Ante meridiem: Before noon
PM = Post meridiem: After noon"

I believe this is number 56 since the death that occurred in April has now been ruled a homicide.

C.J. LeMaster said...

You're correct, 10:53 a.m. We're currently at 56.

Will someone inform 10:53 that they are an idiot. 12 am or 12 pm is accepted terminology. If you can’t figure it out, use the 24h clock and stop bitching.

9:45, please see the link below, which ranks Jackson as the third-worst-run city the United States. Unfortunately, this affects the surrounding areas, so it is our business. Please note, I do not lay all of this at the current mayor's feet. Jackson's systemic problems are bigger than one man.

Cynical Sam said...

I only have anecdotal proof, but there is a perception of crime in Jacktown.

Yet the mayor is more concerned with saying the City of Jackson is against ICE raids and peddling the new JPS rebranding campaign. No mention of the murders or calling out his constituents. #boldnewcity #perceptionofcrime #kush

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.
