On June 14, the Gulfport Police Department arrested 15-year-old Lexi Jade Brown, charging her with one count of attempted murder and one count of first-degree arson.

At approximately 2:33 a.m., Gulfport Police responded to a call on the 13000 block of Dee Avenue regarding a “cutting” incident. Upon arrival, officers found a victim suffering from multiple stab wounds.

The investigation revealed that the victim was asleep when she was attacked by Brown with a knife.

After the stabbing, Brown attempted to start a fire inside the residence. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

During questioning, Brown admitted to planning the attack, stating she intended to kill the victim because she found her to be a “weird bitch” and accused her of “suppressing the black in her.”

Brown was processed and transported to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center, where she is being held on a $1,250,000 bond set by Judge Patano.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the Gulfport Police Department at 228-868-5959 or Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 877-787-5898.
