Police: Resident of home flees following deadly home invasion
Police are searching for the resident of a home after a deadly home invasion Friday in Del City.
The Del City Police Department reports that around 12:30 a.m. Jan. 12 police were called to a home invasion at 3112 Neighbors Lane. On scene police learned that two men had forced their way into the home.
Maj. Ted Kleber said three people were inside the house and one of them started shooting at the suspects.
"The boyfriend in the bed had a gun underneath his pillow," Kleber said. "He took that out and fired at the suspects. During the exchange of gunfire, we had one female that was shot. Both suspects were shot."
One of the suspects was transported from the scene with multiple gunshot wounds. The second suspect was taken into custody. Police later identified the men as brothers Darious O'Neil Jackson, 22, and 29-year-old Sharonne Antonio Jackson.
Before officers arrived on scene the male occupant, 28-year-old Vincent Lamont Alexander, fled the home. Police are searching for him to speak about the incident. He has a felony conviction and shouldn't be in possession of a gun.
"He took the weapon with him so we need to recover the weapon and we also need to hear his side of the story," Kleber said.
The suspects were able to be tracked down quickly by police.
Sharonne Jackson is still in the hospital with a gunshot wound and Darious Jackson is currently in jail.
"We recovered one of the suspects from one of the hospitals," Kleber said. "We went there and picked him up after he had his injuries treated. The other one is currently still down in surgery at Oklahoma trauma. Those are the two suspects that were involved in the actual home invasion."
Police said everyone involved knew each other and they believe this house was targeted.
"They were looking for money and obviously knew these girls had some," Kleber said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Del City Police Department at 405-677-2443.
