Houston police have arrested a suspect charged in the fatal shooting of a woman at 7700 Creekbend #152 about 1:15 a.m. on April 30, 2009.
Tambreshia Laqua Jackson (b/f, DOB: 2-8-93) is charged with murder in the 209th State District Court. Jackson is accused in the death of her mother, Lakisha Jackson Allen, 32, of the above address, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeants L. Flores and R. Blain, Senior Police Officers P. Guerreros and J. Robles reported:
Patrol officers responded to a shooting call at 7700 Creekbend Drive and found Ms. Allen lying on the floor, deceased from multiple gunshot wounds. Witnesses initially stated that Allen was arguing with at least one male when a loud noise was heard and an unknown male suspect ran out the door.
Further investigation revealed that Allen's daughter, suspect Jackson, who was 16 at the time of the murder, was responsible for the shooting. Homicide investigators located Jackson, who was eight months pregnant at the time, in Corsicana, Texas. It was agreed by HPD, the Harris County District Attorney's Office and Jackson that she would turn herself in to police after the baby was delivered. On May 17, 2011, Jackson turned herself in and was transported to the Harris County Jail. On Monday (June 27), Jackson was certified to stand trial as an adult and was charged with murder.
There are no other suspects in this case.
