A Current Tragedy in Mississippi

 

Right now, current events in the US have taken a dark turn. There was a shooting in Mississippi that left eight people dead. The gunman is thankfully in custody. He is reported to have said to the police ‘I ain’t fit to live’.

The suspect confessed to a reporter who caught the interaction on camera. Unfortunately, a Mississippi Deputy Sheriff is among those who were killed on Saturday, May 27, 2017.

The suspect in the shooting is named Willie Cory Godbolt. He is only 35 years old. The dispute was in the neighborhood of Bogue Chitto over the suspect’s children.

Godbolt did not expect to come out of the encounter alive. He was planning to let the cop shoot him so that it was a mass murder/suicide situation.

His other victims were four women, a man and two boys. He was a man with a previous criminal record for armed robbery and aggravated assault; assault, driving with a suspended license; disorderly conduct/breach of peace; and speeding.
