(Newser) – A young boy whose body was found in a car that thieves stole while he was still in it had been shot to death, the AP reports. Jackson, Miss., police Commander Tyree Jones says 6-year-old Kingston Frazier was shot at least once after the car was stolen early Thursday morning from a grocery store parking lot in Jackson. Authorities across Mississippi spent much of Thursday morning searching for the boy. Police say a "person of interest" is in custody and authorities are searching for a second person. Kingston was inside a silver 2000 Toyota Camry when the car was stolen outside a Kroger on Interstate 55 in Jackson about 2am Thursday. Hinds County sheriff's officials say the child's mother had left the car running with Kingston inside. (Read more child murder stories.)
