A Macon man and his 18-year-old son have been charged with various felony counts of streetgang activity after a house and car were shot up in Macon.
Friday morning, members of the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office gang unit and violent crimes unit, along with Georgia State Probation Officers arrested Cedric Jerome Jackson, 41, and Cedric Jerod Jackson, 18, at their home on Oglesby Place in Macon.
The father and son team have been charged with criminal street gang activity, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, terroristic threats and multiple accounts of aggravated assault.
The sheriff's office said the arrests stemmed from a June 5 incident in which Cedric Jerod Jackson shot up a house on Burton Avenue, believing that a rival gang member lived there.
Instead, the woman who lived in the house called police and reported that she knew Cedric Jerod Jackson was responsible for the shooting. The following day, the woman and others in her family drove to the Oglesby Place home where the Jacksons lived and parked in front of their house.
The sheriff's office said the Jacksons drove past the parked car twice, both times making terrorist threats to the women inside the car. The younger Jackson then pulled a gun and shot multiple times at the car, although no one was injured.
The sheriff's office said that during the course of this investigation it was discovered that the son, Cedric Jerod Jackson, was a "documented gang member," belonging to the criminal street gang called 10/12.
The sheriff's office said members of this gang have been tied to numerous shooting investigations in or around Freedom Park and Payne City areas.
Cedric Jerod Jackson, the son, was in the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center on Monday, being held without bond on charges of: eight counts of aggravated assault, two counts of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, two counts of discharge of firearms on or near a public highway or street, two counts of terroristic threats and acts, two counts of criminal street gang activity, and probation violation state court.
Cedric Jerome Jackson, the father, was in the Bibb LEC, also held without bond, on charges of four counts of aggravated assault, criminal street gang activity, terroristic threats and acts, and probation violation superior court.
The sheriff’s office is asking the public to call the gang unit hotline at 478-751-7600 to report any gang activity in your neighborhood
