A Jackson man will be arraigned Monday after being charged in a shooting which occurred earlier this month, according to a news release from the Jackson Police Department. The man's girlfriend has also been charged.
The release said around 11 a.m. Friday, investigators with the Jackson Police Department's Gang Unit and the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Jermal Marable at the Travelers Inn, located at 2247 North Highland Avenue in Jackson. He was wanted on an aggravated assault warrant in connection with an early March shooting.
Marable was in the motel room with his girlfriend, Tiffany Jones, the release said. Jones was arrested for accessory after the fact because she had prior knowledge that Marable was wanted.
Marable, 28, and Jones, 20, will have a bond set Saturday morning and both will be formally arraigned, via video link, Monday in Jackson City Court, the release said.
The release said at 4:28 a.m. on March 5, Jackson police responded to the parking lot of 161 W. University Parkway. A woman told officers that she was driving in the area of Fairway Blvd. and Moize Cut-Off Road when someone shot at her from a Nissan Maxima.
The woman drove to the parking lot and the Maxima followed her to the parking lot before leaving, the release said. The woman was not injured and there was no indication that her vehicle had been struck.
About 10 minutes later, an officer saw a car matching the description of the Maxima in the area of N. Royal Street and Oak Park Drive. The Maxima crashed into a utility pole near the intersection and the driver ran away.
The release said investigators determined that Marable was driving the Maxima.
Marable is also wanted for failure to appear in court in Morgan County, Tennessee. The underlying charge in Morgan County was aggravated assault.
