Amber Alert issued for 2-year-old girl out of Lowndes County | Mississippi's Best Community Newspaper

Hey, you guys. If you live in Mississippi/surrounding areas of Lowndes County, please be on the look out for a 2002 Pontiac Aztec with the license plate PGR7927. The drivers are 34 year old Donald Boyd-Harris and 31 Allison Studdard.

The grandfather found one child (7 months) dead in the home, and while calling police, Harris and Studdard fled with their other child.

Please be on the look out. This has been happening too frequently.

he puts his hands up like he’s pleading and catches the guy completely off guard. i mean. he’s got a gun. guy’s on his knees. he feels totally safe and in control of the situation. then the guys hands are right next to the gun and he surprises him and immediately tilts the weapon up and away from him and yanks the arm down while thrusting his legs forward to kneecap the guy and manages to wrench the gun away

so shit now the second guy is on the ground with probably a broken knee and no gun and the first guy has the weapon and is fucking free and clear remember this me you need to remember this
