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.

I still have a black ribbon with 7980 in my possession. I see it every day. I miss our Monday morning chats at the front desk of the school. I miss your chuckle and your happy countenance. With all the crazy stuff going on, this world misses having a good guy like you on the inside. You are not forgotten my friend.
My son Travis is headed to boot camp. Watch over him, will ya? :) thanks so much....
