Jackson Isaac Morris, 19 of Edmond, has been taken into custody and is facing charges of shooting with intent to kill and discharge of firearms at a building or dwelling after an incident where shots were fired Saturday, June 22 at 1001 E. Edwards St.
A report filed by Edmond Police Officer Jonathan Vincent states that he was dispatched to 1001 E. Edwards in reference to a male subject who was possibly under the influence of “acid” and causing a disturbance. Vincent’s report says before he arrived another Edmond officer and officers from the University of Central Oklahoma Police Department arrived and advised over the radio that shots had been fired from inside the residence.
Upon arrival, Vincent states he joined the other officers outside the residence in the front yard as they were confronting a subject later identified as Jackson Morris. The officer also states that Morris was acting erratically and not complying with commands.
“He was shouting and making odd incoherent statements,” Vincent states. “He was told repeatedly to lay on the ground, to which he would sometimes comply but would then get back up and continue to pace around the yard.”
Vincent states that Morris was eventually taken into custody but only after being tazed.
