Hotel Homicide

 JPD issued the following statement. 

Jackson Police are investigating a shooting that occurred earlier this morning at 5075 I-55 North Frontage Rd.

Officers were called to the location and upon arrival discovered the victim Josh Casaus deceased at the scene from a gunshot wound by suspect Dishawn Sanders.

When officers arrived, Sanders also fired at the officers. Officers returned fire striking and killing Sanders.

Investigators have not yet determined a motive. This case is still under investigation.

Kingfish note: uh-oh, the officer screwed up. Anyone want to guess how?

The officer didn't give the perp a chance to run??

I’ll venture a guess. He took the murder’s life while defending his life as well as others. He’ll catch hell for doing so. Give him a reward!!

Succumbed and succumbed

The suspect succumbed to police return fire.

Either 106 and 107 or 107 and 108.

Ummmmm, the officer was still in his draws due him being at the motel ? All kidding aside, sounds like a good shoot.

Antar will have them riding the desk for 2-3 years or until they leave the department. Other officer lost to the suburbs. At least a new training class of 8 cadets is in the making.

Unless the JPD officer is white and the deceased is African-American, the MSM could not care less. It doesn’t fit any sort of official state narrative of unfortunate and miss-understood and innocent African-American males suffering white supremacist police brutality.

I like your double entendre. Intended or not.

"I suspected that business is dead at the hotels along I-55N."

Unfortunately no. Unsuspecting travelers passing through on I55 don't know the history.

Asking for a Cynical Friend said...

@1:52 PM - you have a firm grasp on the obvious.

KF - screw-up => officer didn't obtain permission from Mayor Baby Chowke to shoot?

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing the screw up was that the cop didn't allow himself to get shot first before returning fire? Am I close?

Marshand Crisler was shot in the leg.

A time to kill said...

At one time long long ago, that was actually a nice Hotel. Had a pretty decent little restaurant. Had dinner there one night with my girl friend when we noticed Kiefer Sutherland and his significant other dining a few tables away. Must have been when they were filming in Canton. Yeah, it's been that long ago. 1996.

Don't know what hotel 4:30 is referring to, but the motel where the murder happened is the Extended Stay America Suites. It's where people stay for an "extended time". ie. contractors in town for weeks, or a lot of other people who don't have homes or anywhere else to go. i believe it's section 8 qualified, since it offers monthly rates. I think 4:30 thinks the article is referring to the Hilton on County Line Road. Pretty sure Keifer Sutherland wasn't at the Extended Stay America Suites. And it certainly doesn't have a restaurant.

I believe it's actually the old Holiday Inn

4:30 in reply to 6:29 said...

Sorry, Bub. Google earth street view drops me in front of the very same hotel at 5075 I-55N that I mentioned. It's either 4 or 5 stories. Pool in a courtyard behind the main hotel. Other rooms on the other side of the pool. It is adjacent to and north of where the old Red Lobster was located. The restaurant of the hotel was in the southeast corner of the hotel facing the frontage Rd./Highway. White cobblestone facade with arches on the front with a green roof. Just like it was 25 years ago when I had dinner there and attended conferences.

I sure don't recall Howard or Maggie even mentioning this event on last night's WLBT 5 or 6 pm report. Wonder why?

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.
