    Drug Suspect Unloads Guns at Jackson Police

    Law enforcement officers serving a warrant exchanged dozens of shots with a wanted man before taking him into custody. No one was injured. The shootout occurred in south Jackson, at 4148 Swan Hill drive, around 3:30 Thursday morning.

    When Hinds County and Jackson narcotics officers tried to serve a search warrant at Robert Jones' south Jackson home, they were met with automatic gunfire, and a wanted man vowing not to go to jail.

    Sampson says, "Mr. Robert Jones began to fire at the offers. The officers took cover; Mr. Jones retreated to the bedroom, retrieved a .22 assault rifle, and began to fire through the wall at officers."

    The officers returned fire and were able to corner Jones as he reached for a third weapon hidden in a closet. Jones is charged with six counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of crack cocaine and marijuana.

    A search of the home turned up what investigators had suspected.

    Sampson says, "Mr. Jones is not one of your street level dealers. They found ten duffel bags in the garage of his home -- duffel bags were full of marijauna residue, which leads you to believe he is a transporter."

    Police say Jones was wanted in Texas for felony possession of marijuana. He is currently on probation for another marijuana possession charge from Madison County, where he served five years.

    Also arrested was his girlfriend Kimberly Edwards, and her daughter was in the home at the time. Police are also exploring child endangerment charges also.

    The five-year old is now in the custody of relatives. Jones' charges are expected to be upgraded because he is a convicted felon with a firearm.

    Anything with a pistol grip is an assault weapon.
