Eight people, including a Mississippi deputy sheriff, were shot and killed Saturday.
Willie Cory Godbolt, 35, is in custody on suspicion of murder.
During his shooting spree, Godbolt shot four women, two boys, a man, and the deputy. The killing occurred in three separate homes. Fox News reported that Godbolt had gone to at least one address to talk about his children.
The shooter appeared to confess to a local paper, The Jackson Clarion-Ledger, on video.
I ain’t fit to live, not after what I done. Not in y’all eyes, not in nobody else’s eyes. My intentions was to have God kill me. I ran out of bullets. Suicide by cop was my intention.
— Willie Godbolt
It is likely that most people would agree that Mr. Godbolt “ain’t fit to live.”
