Posted: Updated:

A man accused of shooting and killing his uncle in Peoria had his bond set at $2- million dollars.   Authorities said 27-year-old Anthony Jackson fatally shot 43- year- old Timothy Jackson Thursday morning.   Authorities  had video from the shooting scene that lead them to the younger Jackson.   In that video they identified the suspect's vehicle as a Chevy Impala which they later tracked down near the Villa Bordeaux apartment complex.  He said investigators found a bloody knife inside the vehicle and drugs.   Police believe Anthony Jackson stabbed his uncle during a fight just hours before Timothy Jackson was shot on Willcox Avenue.   Patelli said police found a handgun inside an apartment at the complex.
Patelli said  Jackson admitted to stabbing his uncle during a fight but denied shooting him a couple hours later.   The 43-year-old Timothy Jackson drove himself to a hospital after the fight.  When he returned to his girlfriend's home on Willcox that's when he was shot dead inside his car around 6;30.   Patelli said a second person in the car with the gunman confirmed that Anthony Jackson shot his uncle several times.   Jackson has prior conviction of lawful possession of drugs and a 2008 gun offense charge.  In addition to the murder charge, he also faces unlawful possession of a weapon.  If convicted of all the charges he faces up to 85 years in prison.
