Gun drawn on Mississippi 6-year-old child with autism.

Ridgeland, MS – Agnela Thompson Roby and her husband are seeking the help from the FBI after the Ridgeland Police Department allegedly drew a gun on their six-year-old son with autism

The incident took place at her mother’s home when police arrived to arrest her 23-year-old brother Carneigio Gray for being in contempt of court for failing to show up and answer to his drug charges from three years ago.

“My son was telling the police officers to stop, to not do that, please don’t hurt his uncle,” Roby told news outlet WBRC. “That’s when the guns were drawn on him and my mother was telling them, ‘Hey please don’t point your gun at my grandbaby. Please don’t do that.’”

So far, Roby and her husband have contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Attorney General’s office. Lt. John Neal, a spokesperson for the police department, said that the couple had failed to file a complaint with him, something he urges the public to do if they are not satisfied with police conduct. Neal told the Clarion-Ledger.

“We’ve got policies and procedures for citizens to file complaints, and there are channels that are in place for citizens to lodge complaints with us to where they can be investigated. If this family feels they’ve been wronged, our doors are open. We’d be happy to talk to them.”
