Police say Mississippi boy shot after car stolen

A 2014 Honda Civic is being sought by police

Kingston Frazier, the 6-year-old who was the center of an Amber Alert based out of Jackson, Mississippi, has been found dead, police told FOX13.

He was in a gray Toyota Camry in the parking lot of a Kroger grocery store on Interstate 55 north in Jackson when that vehicle was taken. An occupant from the second auto, described as a 6ft black male, emerged and stole the vehicle while Frazier was still inside, sparking frenzied searches.

An Amber Alert was issued for the missing boy and was canceled several hours later after police had said he was found dead in Madison County. The vehicle was later found abandoned in a muddy ditch in the suburb of Gluckstadt.

An unoccupied Honda Civic was also recovered by police.

But at around 9.30am the authorities confirmed to local news site The Clarion-Ledger that Kingston was found dead with a single gunshot wound, still in his mother's stolen auto.

Officials with the Hinds County Sheriff's Office confirms that the second suspect in the kidnapping and shooting death of 6-year-old Kingston Fraizer has been taken into custody.

The Madison County Superintendent Dr. Ronnie McGehee said Wakefield is an 11th grader at Ridgeland High. While DeAllen Washington, 18, surrendered himself, authorities said. It has been taken to the State Crime Lab, along with the body of the little boy who has been taken there for autopsy.

Kingston would have graduated kindergarten today at North Jackson Elementary School.

"At this time, we all share the sentiment of a broken heart for Kingston and his family".

"When a child is taken, we pull all resources available to us".

The pair had been in a Honda Civic Coupe and were caught on surveillance tape driving around the store's parking lot before taking the vehicle, cops said.

According to local reports the boy had been last seen asleep in the back of his mother's Toyota Camry when she parked outside a shop at around 1.15am to buy groceries. I can tell you this, we won't rest until they're brought to justice...
