Jackson was found in a car that crashed into another car in a driveway in the 2400 block of North New York, where it was discovered that he sustained a gunshot wound.

He was then taken to a nearby hospital. According to the Peoria County Coroner, he died just after 3 p.m. on Thursday.

The car crashed into another car that was parked in the driveway of 2412 New York and the front passenger door had been opened prior to officers arriving on the scene.

A witness said she heard a loud sound outside of her house and saw the vehicle had crashed across the street, noting she did not see anyone involved.

Other witnesses reported hearing a loud sound as well, saying it sounded like a gunshot, and then the sound of a crash. They also saw two black males running from the direction of the wrecked vehicle.
