Mississippi Shooting

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Eight dead, including a sheriff's deputy.  The shooting in Mississippi spanned three homes in a rural area, and the suspect told The Clarion-Ledger "I ain't fit to live, not after what I done."

Then, he made another incredible admission.

"My intentions was to have God kill me. I ran out of bullets," he said. "Suicide by cop was my intention.""

The suspects name is Willie Cory Godbolt, a 35-year old Mississippi resident.

Godbolt's criminal history is extensive:

■ Charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault in 2005 after he allegedly struck a man with a pistol and took his cash and jewelry;

■ In 2013, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office charged him with simple assault;

■ Arrested in 2015 for disorderly conduct/breach of peace and failure to comply with a request from a sheriff;

■ Arrested in 2015 for speeding, driving with a suspended license, and no proof of liability insurance by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

In 2016, Godbolt filed an appeal to a judgment against him in a simple assault and disorderly conduct case.

Stronger sentencing in the past would have saved the lives of eight people today.
