Continuing Investigation: 6-year-old Jackson child shot multiple times

MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

We have learned more details revealed Friday in the shocking death of a 6-year-old Jackson child.

The Madison County coroner said the child was shot multiple times adding there was head trauma. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is now the lead agency.

Initially the New York Times and CNN reported authorities found the child died from a gunshot wound to the back of the head.

What we know now is the autopsy conducted at the State Crime lab revealed Kingston Frazier was shot multiple times. The autopsy was completed Friday morning.

His body left in the back seat of the stolen car on a dead end Gluckstadt road. Rumors are rampant and questions remain unanswered.

There was a confusing time line. Here's what we have confirmed.  The mother, Ebony Archie goes to Kroger on I-55 north. She comes out of the store and reports her car missing to a Hinds County Deputy Sheriff at 1:15 a.m. Thursday morning.

According to Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain, Jackson police were notified at 1:28 Thursday morning.

The search for a stolen car was broadcast on police radio minutes later. Radio traffic confirms the child was in the stolen vehicle. 

That Amber alert was issued at 4:28 in the morning following standard protocol.

During that time Jackson police quickly got a tag number from the Honda Civic the suspects drove up in, that lead to search warrants and take downs later Thursday.

According to investigative sources Byron McBride was the alleged trigger man. It is our understanding there may be a confession to the crime.

McBride, Dwan Wakefield and D'Allen Washington are facing capital murder charges in Madison County.

According to Rankin/Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest, "As the investigation continues we will be reviewing the information, we have to see if those charges remain appropriate after the investigation is complete. A reporter questioned him, Do you mean the charges could be upgraded or lowered? Guest replied, there is no greater charge than capital murder."

The trio of teenagers accused of kidnapping and killing 6-year-old Kingston Frazier will face a judge Monday in Madison County Justice Court.

All could face the death penalty if convicted.
