Officers were dispatched at approximately 2:44 p.m. Feb. 14 when a reporting party called regarding a woman who was found lying on the ground with “at least” one gunshot wound in her upper body and a bullet casing nearby. Twenty-six hours later on Feb. 15, police arrested Calvin Jackson, the ex-boyfriend of the woman and the father of her children.

Arriving on the scene with the Valley Regional Fire Authority, officers determined the woman suffered “at least” one gunshot wound to the upper body.
