A man was shot in front of his young son Tuesday night and later died. The shooting happened during a home invasion Thursday just before 9:30 p.m. on Rochester Road in South Memphis.
Homicide investigators said a gunman approached a woman and forced her inside her home. Her husband, Gregory Jackson, heard the commotion and came out of a back room in the home to see what was going on. According to Memphis Police, when Jackson emerged from the back of the house, the suspect shot him.
Jackson, 37, was taken to The MED where he later died. Investigators said Jackson's 10-year-old son witnessed the shooting.
