Kingston's celebration 2 years later

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Saturday marked two years since six-year-old Kingston Frazier was shot and killed inside his mom’s car.

Family and friends gathered at a local park in Jackson to remember his life.

“It is a celebration of his life. We are keeping his legacy alive,” said family member Martin Archie.

Family friends and supporters of Kingston Frazier trekked to Parham Bridges Park in Jackson to celebrate his life and remember the fun times they had with the six-year-old.

“A lot of times I saw Kingston before he got ready to go to school. Every day he would ask me before he went to school, am I fresh or do I look good? That will always stick with me,” said Archie.

“I just always remember the good times. He would always come to my house and play around,” said family member Haydenne Archie said.

Two years ago, on this day, Kingston was inside his mom's running car as she ran into Kroger in Jackson. Her car was stolen with the six-year-old still inside.

He was found hours later still inside her car shot to death. Three men were arrested in connection to the crime.

“It is all about Kingston. Of course, he paid the ultimate price. The whole idea of it is to keep the young children, young people alive, and we are asking that every parent, auntie, brother and sister make sure you are focused on stopping the killing and stopping the murders,” said Family member David Archie.

Love ones who gathered at Saturday’s celebration say they do this every year as a way to heal after such a tragic loss. They say although little Kingston is gone, he will never be forgotten.

“Long live King,” said Family members.
