Police Officer Brian Jackson was shot and killed during a foot pursuit of a suspect through a residential area on Madera Avenue.

Officer Jackson responded to a domestic disturbance call on North Henderson Street at approximately 2:45 am. The suspect had threatened his ex-girlfriend and fired a handgun inside a house at the location. When Officer Jackson arrived, the male suspect fled on foot and led officers on a chase through alleys and between houses. The suspect entered a yard and hid, then opened fire on Officer Jackson as he came through the front gate, striking him in the armpit. The suspect ran out of bullets and tossed the gun to the ground, gave up, and was taken into custody.

Officer Jackson was transported to Baylor Medical Center where he succumbed to the wound approximately one hour later. The suspect, who was an illegal alien, was charged convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death.

Officer Jackson had served with the Dallas Police Department for five years. He is survived by his wife, parents, and sister.

It's been 10 years, 10 very long, sad years. I miss you so much and I wish you were here. I grieve still for you, your parents and our families and for the family we never got to have. I hear stories every year about how your life and story has saved an officers life, this give me some peace. Knowing someone is going home as a result of our loss makes me smile. I thought 10 would be easier. I spent the afternoon with Russ Martin and the guys remembering you and the out pouring of love from them and other officers/friends was amazing. I hope you know how many people love you, look up to you, miss you every day and can still hear your voice and your laugh. Keep watching over our family in blue and know I love you forever.
