Jerry Ramon Jackson, 23, has been arrested and charged with one count of aggravated assault in conjunction with the Aug. 31 shooting of a 74-year-old man.

On Sept. 21, deputies from the Pima County Sheriff's Department arrested  Jackson after their investigative efforts and evidence led them to an apartment at 2800 W. Broadway Blvd. in Tucson, where they believed he was staying.

Detectives from the sheriff's Robbery Assault Team had been investigating the case since the suspect allegedly shot the 74-year-old victim, who had answered a Craigslist ad for an iPad.

The suspect and the victim met in the 2300 block of West Ina Road just before 10 a.m. that Wednesday. When the victim arrived, the suspect allegedly entered his vehicle and pointed a gun at the victim.

Then, the gunman allegedly shot the man in the shoulder before fleeing the scene on foot, according to Dawn Barkman, a spokeswoman for the department.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
