Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2022

TO:All UMMC Personnel
FROM:Dr. Jonathan Wilson, Chief Administrative Officer
SUBJECT: Update on Assault, Carjacking in Stadium Lot

Editor's Note: This memo was updated on November 10, 2022 to correct the name of the suspect. 

I’m pleased to announce that the suspect in the assault/carjacking announced earlier this afternoon has been apprehended and is in UMMC Police custody for questioning.

The suspect, Fredrick White, was arrested around 2:30 p.m. today by Capitol Police, with support from the Mississippi Department of Corrections. The suspect was wearing an MDOC ankle monitor, which allowed law enforcement to locate him and make the arrest.

After concluding their investigation UMMC Police will transfer the prisoner to the Hinds County Detention Center.

I appreciate the work of the UMMC Department of Police and Public Safety, Capitol Police, MDOC, Mississippi Department of Public Safety and Mississippi Analysis and Information Center for quickly identifying, locating and arresting the suspect.

Our top priority is to foster an environment of safety and security on and around our campus and facilities, but when an incident occurs despite all safety measures in place, it is reassuring that through the diligent work of our police department and supporting agencies, criminals will be found and brought to justice.
