Brooklyn mass shooting suspect arrested with gun at school in February

Baltimore police arrested a second person in the Brooklyn Homes mass shooting Thursday. The 11 News I-Team confirmed Tristan Jackson, 18, is a student at Digital Harbor High School, but he was arrested for having a gun at a different school earlier this year. Jackson is accused of firing a handgun at least five times in the direction of seven people who were fleeing the annual Brooklyn Day block party. Court documents said Jackson shot at the group in the 4000 block of Eighth Street as they ran from the gunfire. Jackson faces charges of attempted first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. One resident recalls seeing people, some armed with guns, running away from the housing project as gunfire could be heard in the distance. “They weren’t shooting back, but they were fleeing from the place,” a resident named Joseph said. CCTV cameras and surveillance video played a big role in linking Jackson to the crime, documents said. Jackson was also identified by someone who was with him and was wounded in the mass shooting. Documents also indicated police connected Jackson to the crime scene through a GPS monitor he was wearing. Read the full article at WBALTV.
