August 5, 2006 -- Charges have been filed against a suspect in the aggravated assault of a Houston police officer at 4950 Burma about 6 p.m. on Wednesday (Aug. 2).

The suspect, James Ray Jackson (b/m, DOB: 6/9/54), has been charged with aggravated assault against a public servant and possession of a controlled substance in the 351st State District Court.

HPD Officer R. Hahn, sworn in as an officer in July of 1994 and assigned to the Narcotics Division, discharged his weapon at the suspect, missing him. No one was injured.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M.K. Peters and Officer A.J. Palos reported:

Officer Hahn and other officers were serving a warrant at 4950 Burma. Upon entering the residence, Officer Hahn and others loudly announced they were police officers and had a search warrant. As Hahn began to move down the hallway, he observed Jackson, who was standing in a doorway at the end of the hall, raise and point a shotgun at him. Fearing for his life and the lives of the other officers, Officer Hahn discharged his weapon twice, missing the suspect. Following the shooting, Jackson surrendered and was taken into custody.
