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.
