A former Richmond County Sheriff's Deputy, Jessie Jackson, was caught firing a shotgun into a Walmart store in Augusta, Georgia, hitting the Garden Center, as well as into a Dollar Store. Motive is unclear. He was tased and captured.
The shotgun may have belonged to the Sheriff's Office.
From an article:
We are told Jessie Jackson was arrested early Wednesday morning after he reportedly fired a weapon in the Walmart store located on Deans Bridge Road, in Augusta.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
Jackson has been charged with two felony counts: Criminal Damage to Property in the 2nd Degree, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime.
This incident took place at approximately 3:50 a.m. Wednesday morning.
Jackson was reportedly observed by Richmond County deputies as he fired a 12 gauge shotgun into the garden center area of the store. Jackson then attempted to leave and failed to stop at deputies' commands. Jackson was “tased” to gain compliance and was taken into custody at the scene. ....
Investigators suspected the Remington model 870 .12 gauge shotgun was possibly a Sheriff's Office weapon, and followed up by checking inventory records and utilizing the electronic trace (e-trace) system from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
