Police in MS believe they have caught the three men involved in the abduction and murder of a 6-year-old boy, who was in the backseat of his mother's vehicle when it was stolen, PEOPLE confirms.

Hinds County investigators said Kingston's mom reportedly left the Toyota running with him inside when she ran into the store.

Ebony Archie, the child's mother, collapsed and broke down in sobs when she heard the news that her son had been killed at the district attorney's office in Jackson.

The body of her 6-year-old son, Kingston Frazier, was shot to death in the backseat of his mother's vehicle, abandoned on a dead-end road in Madison County.

According to Mississippi State Police, D'Allen Tyreek Washington, 17, Dwan Diondro Wakefield, 17, and Byron McBride, 19, allegedly stole the vehicle where little Kingston Frazier was sleeping after his mother, Ebony Archie, ran into a Jackson Kroger and left her auto running around 1 a.m. early Thursday morning.

Kingston Frazier, a "scholar" at North Jackson Elementary School, was preparing to graduate from kindergarten the morning he was kidnapped and later shot to death on May 18.

The three are facing capital murder charges.

None of the three suspects have any prior convictions but said Washington was out on bond for an armed robbery arrest in Madison County.
