When officers arrived, they found a black male suffering from gunshot wounds. The man, later identified as Pendleton, died later at the University of Mississippi Medical Center from his wounds.

“We have been working with his mom and family to try to get Armone to turn himself in and bring this to a peaceful end,” said BPD Chief Kenneth Collins. “We are not going to stop until we find him. Wherever he runs or hides, sooner or later we are going to find him. The world is not big enough.”

Sims, AKA “Money” or “Moolah”, is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who has any information as to his whereabouts is asked to call BPD at 601-833-2424.
