An arrest warrant was issued for James Lamont Bagsby, a fifteen-year-old escapee from the Victorville juvenile facility. Yep, that's him. Jesus, what is with the posturing? Yeah, I get it. You're bad. I'm assuming also illiterate, uneducated and a mouth breather. I'm going to take a wild guess and say he's probably not a prolific bather, either.
Anyway, Mr. Happypants up there has been charged with one count of murder, one of attempted murder and nine of assault with a deadly weapon.
On Wednesday, he and an unidentified suspect confronted a group of children playing basketball on the grounds of King Middle School. Apparently they asked if the kids were in a gang (With the usual, "Where you from?" bullshit), and when the kids said they weren't in a gang, Mr. Lamont pulled out a gun and fired.
He missed most of the eleven kids on the court, but struck 11-year-old Anthony Michael Ramirez in the back and his brother, 13-year-old Joseph Ramirez in the hand. Anthony died on the way to the hospital.
Bagsby is 5 feet, 5 inches tall, 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He has "James Jr." tattooed on his right arm and the names "Carolyn," "Tiana" and "Jaclyssa" tattooed on his chest. Unfortunately, he does not have a large yellow target on his forehead that says "AIM HERE", though I'm sure there are several members of the community that won't let that get in their way.
If you happen to know anything about this, especially the whereabouts of Mr. Bagsby, please call Detective Mike Vasilis at (909) 384-5636 or the police hot line at (909) 384-5656.
