Monday, February 23, 2009 - 6:25pm

Police are still investigating a double shooting that happened Sunday night in the 600 block of North 25th Street.

As of right now investigators still have no leads and are desperate for the community’s help. The shooting occurred around 10:00 Sunday night and neighbors say they heard between 10 to 15 gunshots. Police later found 36-year-old Darrell Dwayne Jackson lying on the ground shot to death and a 25-year-old woman shot in the leg. She was taken to a nearby hospital.

A neighbor, who asked that we hide his identity out of fear of retaliation, says his heart goes out to Jackson’s family. “I feel sorry for them and I just hope they catch the one that did it ‘cause it’s terrible. I just hate it.”

Investigators have been passing out Crime Stopper flyers that say “how to get a stack.” They’re hoping the reward money will lead them to whoever did this. If you have any information call Crime Stoppers tat 344-STOP.
