JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Cedric Smith, a 34-year-old black male, died Wednesday, March 27, 2019, after being shot earlier that day, according to Jackson police.

Sgt. Roderick Holmes said police responded to the 3800 block of Noble Street sometime before 4:30 a.m. and found Smith with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Investigators later learned Smith was shot by his stepson after making threats toward his wife and attempting to force his way into the home.

Holmes said police actually visited the same home one day earlier to answer a disturbance call but the man left before officers arrived.

No arrests have been made in the case.

Because the stepson is underage and has not been charged, his name has not been released by police.
