10 year old shot during I-10 road rage incident

 Kenner - The Kenner Police Department has arrested a New Orleans parolee after he was involved in a road rage incident in which he shot into an occupied vehicle, resulting in a 10-year-old being shot. 

 On Saturday, June 21, 2014, at about 2:00 P.M., David Sean Jackson, Sr., 26, of 14576 Beekman Road, New Orleans, La., was driving a 2004 Acura green in color, westbound on the I-10.  While driving, Jackson became involved in a road rage incident, with a 50 male driver of a 2007 red Chevrolet pickup.  Inside the Acura with Jackson were his 25 year old girlfriend, and his 6 year old, and 5 month old sons.  The pickup was also occupied by a 10-year-old (male) rear passenger, who belonged to the driver’s girlfriend.   When the vehicles reached the I-10 / 1-610 split westbound, the red truck passed the Acura and changed back into the lane Jackson possessed.  Jackson and the red truck then passed each other several more times as they traveled westbound on the I-10 into Kenner.  Once reaching Kenner, Jackson pulled along side of the pickup truck and began firing a gun into the truck, striking the 10-year old rear male passenger.  The driver of the truck then rammed the vehicle driven by Jackson.  Jackson attempted to flee and exited the I-10 at Williams Boulevard while being chased by the red pickup.  Upon reaching Williams Boulevard & 32nd Street, the driver of the pickup then rammed the Acura a second time in an attempt to prevent Jackson’s escape.  Both vehicles were stopped by Kenner Police who were notified of the incident at Williams & Driftwood Boulevard, in Kenner. 

 As the result of this incident, Jackson was arrested an charged with the crimes of aggravated criminal damage to property, attempt second degree murder, illegal possession of a firearm by a person convicted of certain felonies, illegal carrying of weapons, multiple traffic violations, and possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine (19 grams).  After Jackson’s arrest he informed officers he had crack cocaine concealed on his person which was later seized. 

 At the time of arrest, Jackson was presently on parole until 8/23/2016 for distribution of drugs and felony possession of a firearm. 

 The 10-year-old was transported to University Hospital where he remains in stable condition.  According to doctors, the 10-year-old, received a grazing wound to the nose area, in addition, had fragments strike the child in his sinus cavity.  At the time of this press release, surgeons were attempting to remove the fragments, but if prevented from doing so, the child will have to undergo plastic surgery. 

 Kenner Police will be consulting with the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office whether criminal charges should be filed against the driver of the red pickup truck.  No other injuries were reported.  At the time of this press release, Jackson remains in custody, no bond has been set.  The Jefferson District of Probation and Parole was also notified of Jackson’s arrest.  A parole detainer will be placed on Jackson once he’s transported to the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center.    

 Chief Steve Caraway urges anyone with information concerning this incident to call Kenner Police Detective Shaun Watson at (504) 712-2240 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.   At the time of this press release Jackson remains in custody, no bond has been set.
