WAXAHACHIE — Members of United States Marshals Service have arrested a man wanted in connection with a Friday morning shooting in Waxahachie.
Waxahachie resident Jermy Jermon Jackson, 29, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after his arrest Monday night.
“On Friday at approximately 10:18 a.m. our officers responded to a report of gunshots in the 700 block of E. Jefferson St. The caller reported hearing gunshots and a male screaming,” Waxahachie Police Lt.

He was transported to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the hip.”
Woodruff said the victim gave police the name of the person who shot him and officers searched a home nearby trying to locate Jackson. Detectives requested and received an arrest warrant for Jackson by Friday afternoon.
“He was located and arrested in Dallas last night (Monday) by agents of the United States Marshals Office and transported to the Waxahachie Police Department,” Woodruff said.
According to the Wayne McCollum Detention Center’s website, Jackson was booked into the jail on Monday and has a bond totaling $100,000.
