Oakhurst Shooting Suspect Taken In To Custody

Police have released new details about the Sept. 22 shooting at Oakhurst Homes after the suspect, 22-year-old Jashon Gordon, was taken into custody on Monday in Ohio.

Authorities say three witnesses came forward and reported hearing several gunshots coming from the upstairs bedroom of the apartment where the shooting took place.

Police say one witness claimed that Gordon arrived at the apartment asking to see his child prior to the shooting.

The first witness also reported counting four to five gunshots, the complaint states.

Detectives say a second witness stated that he/she found the deceased victim, 19-year-old Emerald Nugent Jr., on the floor and then asked the woman what had happened, to which she reportedly responded, “everything is fine.”

Police say the second witness also claimed that the woman who survived the shooting was allegedly in a relationship with both Nugent and Gordon, and stated that she and Gordon reportedly had a child together.

According to the affidavit, police say officers later recovered the gun used in the shooting, which was reportedly in the possession of a minor at the time it was found.

Police noted that the gun was registered to Gordon’s older brother.

Authorities say Gordon’s family members stated that he did have access to the firearm and that they were unaware that the gun was missing.

According to online court records, Gordon faces several charges, including criminal homicide, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

Officials say he is currently awaiting extradition from Ohio.
