Officers responded to the 400 block where they found a black male lying in the roadway.  The victim appeared to be suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the body and was later pronounced deceased at the scene.  

Officers learned from witness account that a male dressed in dark clothing ran towards the victim, firing several rounds using a rifle-style weapon.  The suspect then fled on foot in an unknown direction of travel.

I’ve always heard before one can solve a problem, one must acknowledge a problem exist. Our political correct society shields the problem & prevents the solution thereof, so crime flourishes.

I give up. I can’t drive in Jackson anymore. Between the potholes and bodies in the roadways it’s just become impossible.

I thought we were past 65 by now? What was the YTD from last year?

It's only the perception of #63.

You are not driving anywhere in Jackson where this is happening.

10:43, I don't doubt that you may have driven somewhere and there were potholes in the road. Hell, I was driving in Madison the other day and hit two on one street.

But I'll bet you haven't driven anywhere where there was a body in the road - in Jackson or in Madison County. Or anywhere for that matter.

As much as we would like to find a solution to this epidemic, there is none. Violence has become an integral part of this culture. You could place a cop on every corner in town, but when one of these thugz decides to settle a score, nothing short of murder is on their mind. And I'm telling you, it ain't gonna get any better, only worse.

I doubt this thug had a brass catcher so it should be easy to narrow down the caliber of the "rifle style" weapon.

Im curious if this was a magazine feed semi auto rifle, or if this poor soul was ventilated with 30-30 lever action.

If JPD knows the caliber and are keeping it quiet then we can only assume that they found an exotic shell casing. Something unexpected and and they are keeping quiet so as to not tip off the suspect.

@2:08, I drive on Ridgewood Road. Idiots with guns are big enough to go anywhere. Often wonder if they are in cars next to me and that feeling is not limited to just Jackson.

I read the other day that Jackson is now the 7th most dangerous city in the USA. Great stat for a state that desperately needs industry, businesses, and tourists. We better shape up.

...." The victim appeared to be suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the body"...

How else could you possibly suffer from gunshot wounds if they weren't "to the body"??????

It's just a number.

10:53; as that year has ended, there IS no YTD from last year. YTD means year to date. I think you're asking for the Year End figure?

10:50 - Do your stats represent indictments for Murder or indictments and guilty verdicts that were manslaughter that should have been murder? We all know every mayor in the past 25 years has cooked the books with the help of the chief(s) of PoPo and others.

Jackson has an estimated population of approximately 165,000. http://worldpopulationreview.com/us-cities/jackson-ms-population/

If 10:50 a.m.'s projection of Jackson's murder rate of 86 for 2019 turns out to be correct, Jackson will have a per-capita murder rate of about 52 per 100,000 people. That ties the 20th highest murder rate in the world for cities not at war (for cities with a population of at least 300,000).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_by_murder_rate

Jackson will still be behind St. Louis (61), but ahead of Baltimore (51), Detroit (39) and New Orleans (37).

Since you apparently don't know, let me explain: Gunshot wounds to the head (not body) are usually fatal, not "wounds" which implies the victim is still alive.

Which street? Name it.

10:50, can you, or anyone, annotate this list to show who was mayor and/or JPD chief each year? No agenda here, just wondering.

🆙 to 64

8:50 - There is no such thing as "YTD from last year". YTD means year to date and is (usually) a monthly figure.

There ain't no potholes in Madison. Unless, well, you venture off east onto Hoy Road. That's the area the Mayor has chosen to forget about.

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.
