Armed Family Stops Escaped Murder Suspect

posted on March 12, 2016

Members of a Vicksburg, Miss., family found themselves in a grave situation last week, but the father owning a firearm and knowing how to use it likely saved all of their lives.

According to police, Rafael McCloud escaped from a jail in Warren County, Miss., last week, where he was being held on charges of rape and capital murder. On Thursday, he approached a man starting his car and forced the man into the house. Inside, McCloud tied up the homeowner and his wife, then stabbed the man.

At some time during the hostage situation, the homeowner managed to free himself, retrieve his gun and shoot McCloud, killing him on the spot. Local media reports indicate that the homeowner was taken to the hospital, and his wife and two children were unharmed.
