NORTH WEBSTER, Ind. (WOWO): A Milford man was arrested on five different felony charges after a police shooting in North Webster.
Alexander David Jackson, 24, was formally charged with attempted murder, bodily injury to law enforcement officer, resisting law enforcement, criminal recklessness and criminal recklessness while armed with a deadly weapon.
On July 27, Jackson began chasing a SUV on southbound S.R. 13 and fired three or four shots at a man in the vehicle, according to court documents.
A passenger in the SUV called 911. In the pursuit, the other driver passed Jackson’s car. Jackson then drove off the side of the road and chased the SUV while driving on the shoulder.
Near the Lake City Bank in North Webster, Jackson rammed his truck into the SUV. The SUV hit three wooden polls. Jackson also lost control of his car, sideswiped another vehicle before continuing on State Road 13.
Kosciusko County Police Officer Donald McCune saw Jackson and attempted to stop him. Instead of stopping, Jackson “accelerated” and struck the front end of the marked Sheriff’s patrol car, police say.
After hitting the patrol car, Jackson resumed chasing the SUV. He eventually lost control of his truck and hit a building. Officer McCune tried to stop Jackson again, but he rammed his vehicle and knocked McCune temporary unconscious.
When officer McCune woke up, he was rammed two or three more times.
As Jackson was preparing to ram the officer’s car again, McCune fired several rounds. Jackson was hit, left his vehicle and surrendered to officers.
Police found a Glock 9 mm handgun with a round in the chamber and three in the magazine. Police also found multiple empty 9 mm casings and a sawed-off shotgun inside or around Jackson’s car.
Jackson was taken into custody at about 2 a.m. Monday after being discharged from the hospital. He’s jailed on more than a $50,000 bond for the multiple crimes.
