Jason was waiting near his co-defendant’s home the night of the shooting, authorities said. When a car driven by the defendant’s girlfriend stopped in the man’s driveway, Jason approached the vehicle and fired multiple shots, authorities said.
The woman was shot in the upper back, left thigh and right shoulder, while the co-defendant suffered abrasion injuries to his hip and both hands. None of the injuries are considered life threatening.
Jason wanted to shoot the man because he believed the co-defendant “reported” him in connection with the February armed robbery, authorities said. In this case, authorities say Jason was armed with a handgun when he entered the defendant’s home and robbed him and two other men before escaping on foot.
Investigators quickly began to suspect that the co-defendant had planned the robbery with Jason and was subsequently charged. The two men have pleaded not guilty in this case.
