Pregnant Woman Fatally Shot and Killed in Jackson Crossfire

On June 11th, a pregnant 21-year-old Jackson lady was shot and died off Industrial Drive. Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart of Hinds County, Mississippi, has determined that this was a murder.

Late Saturday night, while Ayairia Anderson was leaving Soop’s, a restaurant and bar on Country Club Drive, she was shot in the head and leg. Anderson was eight months pregnant at the time.

Anderson’s aunt, Katina Eggleston, said that her niece’s friends had tried to revive her after calling 911 and that they had all fled the bar quickly when a fight broke out.

Friends informed Eggleston that Anderson was caught in the crossfire as she tried to drive away in her car. Her automobile broke down on an overpass.
