The Jackson Police Department is investigating after a candidate for House of Representatives had her home shot up over the weekend.

Tamarra Grace Butler-Washington, who is running for House District 69, told WLBT that she was coming off a long night on the campaign trail when her and her family were shocked by at least 12 bullets going through the front of their home Saturday morning.

“I was working on some things for election day for my team. I heard gunshots, which unfortunately in this area, it’s not uncommon that we hear them. So, it didn’t alarm me or anything of that nature. But then I heard them again,” Butler-Washington recounted to the TV station.


“I heard that the bullet came through and shattered the glass, and as it traveled by, I was sitting right there. I just fell to the floor and began to crawl to the back of my house.”

The report continued, saying that video surveillance from a nearby home showed four men firing the shots. At this time, it’s unclear if the shooting was politically motivated.

Butler-Washington’s son and niece were sleeping inside the home at the time of the shooting, but fortunately, no one was injured.

Butler-Washington is seeking to replace Rep. Alyce Clark, who announced her retirement after 38 years in February. Primary elections in Mississippi are slated for Tuesday, August 8.
