SOUTHAVEN, Miss. — The man shot and killed by a Southaven police officer Wednesday has been identified as 20-year-old Jeremy Vann of Memphis.

Undercover officers were meeting with a suspected drug dealer in the Big Lots parking lot Wednesday morning.

When officers moved in to make an arrest, they say Vann took off, running over an officer.

That officer fired his gun, and so did at least one other officer.

Vann was hit and died on the way to the hospital.

Police arrested another suspect in the car, 20-year-old Teon Katchens, also of Memphis.

Katchen is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, conspiracy to commit a felony crime and child abuse.

The child abuse charge stems from the fact a small child was found in the car.

That child is now in the care of the Department of Human Services.

      Two Memphis thugs off the street and a child taken by DHS. Good job guys, keep up the good work. Sorry, you thug lovers, betta tell ya homeys to stays out of Southaven. Unlike Hickory Hill and Frayser, Southaven police don’t turn the other way when thugs start acting up.

    If Katchens has two other felonies in Memphis, and with Mississippi having the three strikes you out law, he going away for a long time.

    It tells me that the police are smarter than the average Hood Rat.

    200 Black people on that parking lot no whites at all only blacks

    Now this tells me that the blacks are the ones who are the criminals, hence they are the ones who are busted. They need to go where drugs are legal like California,Mexico, or South America.
