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.
