Guilty Verdict for Gang Member
A gang member who allegedly shot and killed a 16-year-old boy last October has been found guilty in Hennepin County District Court.
Jeremy Jackson, 21, was charged Friday with first-degree murder and is scheduled for sentencing on Jan. 8, according to the Star Tribune.
Jackson was found guilty of shooting Gennaro Knox, who he mistook for a rival gang member, the Star Tribune reports.
The case came to court in September, but a hung jury led to this week's retrial, the Star Tribune writes.
The article quotes the victim's mother saying she hopes the verdict will send a message to other gang members about the consequences of violence.
