The Richmond Police Department, in consultation with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, has ruled the fatal shooting of Alex Jackson in Creighton Court last month as justified.

At approximately 12:23 a.m., March 27, RPD officers were called to the 2100 block of Creighton Road for a report of a shooting. At that location, they discovered Jackson’s body lying on the ground outside a residence.

After a thorough and complete investigation, it was determined that the fatal shot was fired in self-defense. The adult male who shot Jackson will not be charged.

A second adult male, who suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound in the incident, has been released from the hospital.
