Jackson allegedly shot Detrick Yurnell Rogers, of Murphysboro, who died on Oct. 25 while being treated at a St. Louis-area hospital. The warrant for Jackson was issued the same day.

About 1:30 a.m. Oct. 24, Murphysboro police officers responded to reports of multiple shots fired near the intersection of Shomaker Drive and South 20th Street. Rogers was found wounded at the scene with a gunshot wound to the head, according to police.

Later, a second gunshot victim arrived at the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. That man was treated and released, police said.
