Police Say Would-Be Robber Shot, Hospitalized

A would-be robber was hospitalized early Sunday morning after his alleged victim shot him multiple times, Jackson police said.

Jerriod Peters knocked on the door of a home on McKee Street at about 5:30 a.m., officers said. But when the homeowner answered, he apparently took the handgun from the [sic] Peters and shot him.

Peters is listed in critical condition at University Medical Center.

The homeowner hasn’t been charged in the shooting.

man shot in alleged robbery dies

The latest in a spate of suspected criminals to encounter an armed Jackson resident died Monday morning.

Jerriod Peters, 21, was the second man to die in just over two weeks after being shot during an apparent botched robbery.

Police haven’t released the name of the man who shot Peters. They’ve said the man reported Peters knocked on his door, in the 300 block of McKee Street, about 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

Peters and the homeowner had guns, and they exchanged fire. Peters was hit multiple times and died shortly after midnight at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said autopsy results are pending.

No one in the neighborhood would talk about the incident on Monday. Several men outside the duplex where it happened said they knew nothing about the shooting.
