Father, son arrested in Payne City, Freedom Park shootings

The Bibb County Sheriff's Office arrested a father and son accusing them of gang activity in a recent shooting.

Cedric Jerod Jackson, 18, and Cedric Jerome Jackson, 41, were arrested Friday at their Oglesby Place home, according to a sheriff's office news release.


The pair are charged with criminal street gang activity, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, terroristic threats and multiple accounts of aggravated assaults.

Investigators said the son is a member of the gang "10/12."

"Recently this year, members of this gang have been tied to numerous shooting investigations in or around Freedom Park and Payne City areas," the news release states.

Sometime before June 5, the son had an argument with a member of another gang about a burglary and items stolen in the burglary, according to the sheriff's office.

On June 5, the son drove by a home on Burton Avenue where he believed the other gang member lived and fired shots at the house, according to Bibb County sheriff's spokesman Sean DeFoe.

The person the son was looking for wasn't home, but some women were inside. One of them was the mother of the guy the son was looking for.

On June 7, the mother and other women drove to the Jacksons' home on Oglesby place so they could check out the address and give it to investigators.

The father and son, who were both in a car, noticed the women parked across the street from their house.

The father drove past the car the women were in, and his son yelled out "terroristic threats" at the women in the car, DeFoe said.

The men drove past the car a second time and the son shot at their car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office Gang Unit "Hotline" at 478-751-7600.
