"We are saddened by the violence displayed today by the suspect and the loss of life," said Chronister. He stated his team made every attempt to get Jackson to surrender peacefully.

He explained that the HCSC is investigating the death of two men inside a Riverview apartment in what appears to be a murder-suicide.

On Monday, June 7, at approximately 7:30 am, officers were dispatched to the 6000 block of Cypressdale Drive after a 911 caller revealed his friend had FaceTimed him and said he murdered a man who he described as his boyfriend.

Jackson called on the deputies and told them to shoot him. He engaged with the officers in a nearly seven-hour standoff and turned the gun on himself.

The SWAT team and crisis negotiators, together with the deputies, gathered at the property and continued de-escalation efforts. Jackson had refused to exit the residence.

Last month, a man from Clayton shot himself after killing his wife during an altercation in their son's bedroom, police said. Town officials revealed the tragic incident that occurred at 120 Kennel Lane before 10 pm.

The authorities received a 911 call from Christina Bueno. The 33-year-old called and requested police officers because her husband Jaime Bueno, 35, had a gun, and they were involved in a domestic dispute.

The 911 dispatcher heard gunshots while on the phone with Christina, and the phone line disconnected. When the police arrived at the couple's home, they found their bodies, but their six-year-old son got off unharmed.

Alyson-Renee Johnson, the mother of the 27-year-old, set up a GodFundMe page for her daughter and urged people to speak up if they are experiencing domestic violence and for their families to help them.
