FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield man accused of shooting another man Oct. 5 outside a Suisun City bar was in court briefly Wednesday, agreeing to postpone a probable cause hearing that had been set for next week.
Michael O. Jackson, 29, faces an attempted murder charge and a possible life sentence if he is convicted. Jackson remains locked up at the jail with his bail is set at $750,000. He is set to be back in court Nov. 13 to reschedule the probable cause hearing.
Witnesses told police that Jackson got into a late-night argument with another man before he got into a car and started to drive away. Jackson stopped his car briefly and is suspected of firing a single gunshot out the passenger window, striking the victim in the hip, according to police.
Jackson was arrested after police reviewed video surveillance footage from another nearby Main Street nightspot. The business owner recognized a woman who is seen in the footage greeting Jackson and giving him a brief hug. The woman was contacted and that led to Jackson, who was identified by the victim as the gunman, according to court records.
A search of Jackson’s home on New Jersey Street turned up the gun used in the shooting, police said.
