23-year old Marquise Jackson was arrested yesterday by the Jacksonville Police Department on charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm in connection to the shooting that took place on the 7-hundred block of South Church St on January 19th.
Marquise Jackson is the brother of Marcus Jackson, who was allegedly murdered by Avery Berry in October of last year. Trenton Jackson was arrested following the January shooting that allegedly targeted a member of the Berry family. No one was injured in the shooting.
According to JPD Lieutenant Walker, Marquise was named by the victim of the shooting, as well as other witnesses of the shooting, during the course of the investigation. Marquise was arrested during a traffic stop, where officers also allegedly found controlled substances, less than 2.5 grams of cannabis, and that Marquise was driving with a revoked or suspended license.
At the time of the shooting incident, JPD Lieutenant Cox said he didn’t believe the shooting was connected to the murder of Marcus Jackson and subsequent arrest of Avery Berry, but did believe it was connected to an ongoing dispute between the two families. Marquise Jackson is being held on $10,000 bond.
