HPD Homicide Division Officers D. Stark and G. Sullivan reported:
HPD patrol officers responded to a call at the UPS distribution center at the above address regarding an upset employee (Jackson) on the property with a large gun. Sergeants Gonzalez and Holcomb arrived and saw Jackson standing next to his vehicle holding a shotgun. The sergeants gave Jackson repeated verbal commands to drop his weapon, but he refused. Jackson then raised the shotgun and pointed in the direction of the officers. Fearing for their lives, Sergeants Holcomb and Gonzalez discharged their duty weapons, but did not strike Jackson, who also discharged his shotgun. Jackson then placed the shotgun on the ground and surrendered.
As is customary in HPD officer-involved shooting incidents in the city limits, this case is being investigated by the HPD Homicide and Internal Affairs Divisions.
