8 year-old shooting victim expected to recover, becomes honorary detective

Richard Kyles, just 8 years old, is expected to make a full recovery after being shot in the back of the head last week.

Jackson Police visited Kyles in the hospital Thursday, and named him an honorary Jackson Police Department Detective.


Kyles was in critical condition after being shot in the head June 18 as he was asleep on the backseat of his mother’s car.

Lakia Bradley, 35 and Kendrick Jackson, 26, were charged with aggravated assault and shooting in an occupied vehicle following that shooting. Police say Kyles’ mother was Jackson’s ex-girlfriend.
