Creighton Court Fatal Shooting Ruled as Justified

April 29, 2015

The Richmond Police Department, in consultation with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, has ruled the fatal shooting of Alex Jackson in Creighton Court last month as justified.

At approximately 12:23 a.m., March 27, RPD officers were called to the 2100 block of Creighton Road for a report of a shooting. At that location, they discovered Jackson’s body lying on the ground outside a residence.

After a thorough and complete investigation, it was determined that the fatal shot was fired in self-defense. The adult male who shot Jackson will not be charged.

A second adult male, who suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound in the incident, has been released from the hospital.
