JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Lawrence Hill, a 66-year-old man, died Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020, after being shot by his son in south Jackson, according to police.

Investigators believe Sedrick Rhodes, 42, shot and killed his father that evening.

After the shooting, Rhodes barricaded himself in a rear bedroom.

SWAT responded but was unsuccessful in negotiating with Rhodes.
