Man accused in Suisun shooting to stand trial

FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield man accused of shooting another man Oct. 5, 2013 outside a Suisun City bar was ordered Monday to stand trial on an attempted murder charge.

Michael O. Jackson, 29, faces a possible life sentence if he is convicted. Jackson remains locked up at the jail with his bail set at $750,000. He is scheduled to return to court April 1 for the possible setting of dates for a jury trial.

The man Jackson is accused of shooting was the primary witness during Jackson’s probable cause hearing. The man, who hobbled to the witness stand using a cane, testified he parked across the street from AJ’s bar on Main Street about 45 minutes before closing time and saw two of his friends arguing nearby with Jackson.

Jackson interrupted the angry exchange of words by shouting “I got something for you,” before he walked to his car and retrieved a gun, the man testified. Jackson went back to the three men, pointed the gun at them and cocked the trigger three times before he went back to his car and started to leave, the man testified.

As Jackson started to drive off, he allegedly pointed the gun at the trio. A woman in the car shouted out, “No, no don’t do it,” before a single shot was fired, striking the man in the hip and shattering the top of his femur with a .45-caliber slug.

Suisun City police s few days later went to Jackson’s home on New Jersey Street in Fairfield, where they seized a gun found in a shoe box in the attic.

    Face it, guys like this don't care about us. This isn't about black or white, this is about bad people who are dangerous. Remember the time when we had a community that wasn't off the wall? I guess that we should just keep our head up, and keep the faith. Some say crimes liket this are just a product of human nature, I say we've had enough.

    B. Jean, I can't completely disagree but I'd say the problem is more 10% human nature and 90% lack of discipline and enforcement at so many levels. I agree we've had enough.

    WHEN WE ARRIVED IN THE LATE 50'S FAIRFIELD WAS A CHARMING, SMALL, FRIENDLY TOWN. AS THE YEARS PROGRESSED, EVERYONE WANTING MORE AND MORE. NOW WE HAVE TURNED INTO A GANG INFESTED, INCONSIDERATE TOWN WITH A TERRIBLE DRUG AND HOMELESS PROBLEM.
