A six-year-old boy was found dead in the back of his mum's car after it was stolen with him inside from outside a grocery shop.

Kingston Frazier (6) was found dead with a single gunshot wound at the back of his mum's abandoned stolen car.

Two men were caught on CCTV circling the shop parking lot in Mississippi before stealing the car, according to the New York Post.

They allegedly jumped into the car and took off with the six-year-old boy.

The car was later abandoned 15 miles away from where Kingston had disappeared.

According to the New York Post, at least three suspects have been arrested in connection to the coldblooded killing.

The third person of interest is believed to be an accomplice.

The six-year-old was described by friends and family as "outgoing" and was due to finish kindergarten this week.

“Just a great, great, 6-year-old who we just can’t imagine that something like this would happen, that people would have in their heart to do that to a 6-year-old,” Frazier’s uncle, David Archie, told the Clarion-Ledger.

“Even if I was mad at the world, I couldn’t do this to a 6-year-old,” he said. “To me, it’s hatred. There is nothing out there worth taking a 6-year-old’s life…I can tell you this, we won’t rest until they’re brought to justice…You can believe that.”
