KENNER, La. (WGNO) – A man on parole for drugs and weapon charges is accused of shooting at a pickup truck Saturday afternoon injuring a 10-year-old boy.

Officials say the shooting happened around 2 p.m. when both vehicles; a red pickup truck and a green Acura, passed each other several times in an alleged road rage incident on Interstate-10.

Once reaching Kenner, police say the man driving the Acura open fired at the pickup striking the boy in the backseat. The boy suffered a graze wound to the nose area, according to doctors and underwent surgery. He is expected to recover.

The shooter then attempted to flee the scene, but the pickup rammed the Acura several times getting the attention of police.

Authorities charged 26-year-old David Jackson with aggravated criminal damage to property, attempt second degree murder, illegal possession of a firearm by a person convicted of certain felonies, illegal carrying of weapons, multiple traffic violations, and possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine (19 grams). After Jackson’s arrest he informed officers he had crack cocaine concealed on his person which was later seized.

Jackson was on parole until August 2016 for distribution of drugs and felony possession of a firearm.

Jackson’s 25-year-old girlfriend, and his 6-year-old and 5 month old sons were also in the car during the shooting.

Kenner Police are investigating whether criminal charges should be filed against the driver of the pickup truck. No other injuries were reported.
