Stray bullet being eyed in death of an elderly Bushwick man
Police are investigating the possibility that a stray bullet may have killed a 79-year-old Bushwick man in his apartment.
James Jackson was found unconscious by his live-in girlfriend in his Gates Avenue home about 2:20 a.m. Sunday, according to an NYPD source.
Jackson, who had a gunshot wound in the neck, was immediately taken by ambulance to Woodhull Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Jackson had a history of nine arrests during the 1980s and 1990s; they include two for possession of a controlled substance, one for forgery and one for driving without a license."His girlfriend is blind and has hearing issues: We're still figuring out what happened," a police source said Sunday.
