The body of a missing 6-year-old boy was found Thursday morning in the back seat of a vehicle where he had been sleeping hours prior when the car was stolen from a Kroger grocery store parking lot in Jackson, Mississippi.
Authorities said the boy died from at least one gunshot wound, and three suspects, all teenagers, are in police custody.
According to reports, the boy’s mother, Ebony Archie, stopped at the grocery store around 1:30 a.m. and quickly ran inside to grab a few items as she left her 6-year-old son, Kingston Frazier, asleep in the back seat of her Toyota Camry with the engine running. Archie said she was in the store about 10 or 15 minutes and when she returned to the parking lot, her car – and her son – were gone.
Surveillance video from the store captured images of a Honda Civic pulling up beside Archie’s Camry, then a suspect jumped out, got into Archie’s car and both vehicles drove away.
Police were called about the stolen vehicle, but, for reasons which aren’t known at this
