COLUMBUS, Ga. — The Columbus Police Department announces Wednesday a new suspect in two local murder cases.
A release from Lt. Greg Touchberry says 26-year-old Reginald Jackson is connected to a July murder and aggravated assault case on Rigdon Road and the murder of a man found shot and burned in a car trunk on Harbison Drive, also back in July.
As News 3 reported, Brandon Scott and Rashaun Howard were found shot in an apartment complex on Rigdon Road back on July 7. Both were rushed for medical treatment, but Scott later succumbed to his injuries.
A police investigation reveals between six and 10 men surrounded the area before multiple shots were fired in this case.
A few days later on July 10, police found the body of Michael Fleming burning in a car trunk at the intersection of Harbison Drive and Head Street. Police say Fleming had been shot before he was set on fire.
Police say Jackson is the subject of arrest warrants in both cases. He should be considered extremely dangerous and armed.
He is described as follows:
- Reginald Jackson
