BREAKING: Thug Goes on Killing Spree, Multiple People Dead

This is not the story you want to start the day off with.

Eight people are dead including a deputy sheriff in Lincoln, Mississippi.

Cory Godbolt seems to have been following in the footsteps of the Times Square killer, with his goal of the slaughter being suicide by cop. He said he ran out of bullets though, and has been taken into custody.

From The Clarion-Ledger:

Godbolt, 36, fled from police and allegedly killed people at three different scenes in Lincoln County. He told The Clarion-Ledger reporter he did it because he loved his wife and children and he loves Bogue Chitto.

Godbolt told The Clarion-Ledger that he had gone to a residence off Lee Road in Bogue Chitto in order to talk about his children. At some point neighbors called police, and that’s when the deputy arrived to try to calm the situation.

“My pain wasn’t designed for him. He was just there,” Godbolt said as he sat on the road waiting to be transported by ambulance. “We was talking about me trying to take the children  home… somebody called the officer…. that’s what they do, they intervene. It cost him his life. I’m sorry.”

When asked what’s next for him, Godbolt said, “Death… Suicide by cop was my intention. I ain’t fit to live. Not after what I’ve done.”

Godbolt had been shot and was treated on scene for a gunshot wound, then transported to a hospital.

There are not many more details at this point but this may be the largest crime spree Lincoln County has seen according to residents.
