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 is in custody and being transported for questioning.
He declined to comment when asked if he had anything to do with the child’s death.
Officials say 18-year-old DeAllen Washington was arrested on Thursday afternoon by Hinds County Sheriff’s Deputies. We are working to learn more about this latest arrest.
18-year-old Dwan Diondro Wakefield, of Ridgeland, was taken into custody on Holmes Avenue in Jackson just before 11 a.m. on Thursday in the kidnapping and slaying of the little boy.
We’ve confirmed that Wakefield attends Ridgeland High School where he played quarterback on the football team.
Police found the boy dead of a single gunshot wound in the backseat of a stolen car in Gluckstadt, a Jackson Police Department spokesman said.
The stolen Toyota was found on Gluckstadt Road at a dead end behind the ABC warehouse. It has been taken to the State Crime Lab, along with the body of the little boy who has been taken there for autopsy.
Fraizer was last seen Thursday morning at about 1:15 at the Kroger at 4910 I-55 North in Jackson before he was allegedly kidnapped.
According to the Hinds County Sheriff’s office, his mom, Ebony Archie, arrived at Kroger in her Toyota Camry and ran inside the store for a few minutes. She allegedly left her car running and her son inside the car.
Within a short time, authorities say two subjects pulled up to Archie’s car.
MBI says the second vehicle involved, a Honda Civic, has been found. The passenger of the Honda, a 6 foot tall black male, got out of his car and jumped in Archie’s car with the child inside. Both cars sped away.
