When the City of Aliquippa police arrived on Cooper Street on Nov. 25, they say they found Jackson with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A neighbor who talked to KDKA said she heard three gunshots. She thought she also heard a car screech as it left the scene.

State police say Simmons was arrested as a suspect in the case. He has been charged with criminal homicide and is now behind bars at the Beaver County Jail, awaiting arraignment.

They did not release a motive in the shooting.
