Kingston Frazier from Mississippi, who went missing Thursday after thieves stole his mother’s Toyota Camry, was shot at least once in the back seat of the vehicle, which was abandoned in a muddy ditch, said Jackson Police Commander Tyree Jones.
Wakefield, 18, is in custody of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, and authorities are still searching for Washington.
About nine hours later, following a child-abduction alert and widespread publicity, a man reported the Camry was on the side of a dead-end road in the suburb of Gluckstadt.
‘A six-year-old is gone,’ said Kingston’s cousin, Kolby Irby. ‘His mother has to deal with this. That’s her baby.’
