Kolby Moore, 20, turned himself in to Caddo Correctional Center Monday night and was booked into the facility at 4:18 a.m. Tuesday on one count of second-degree murder.

Sunday, Shreveport police arrested 20-year-old La’Travion Anderson and charged him with second-degree murder in connection with Jackson’s death.

Police say Jackson was traveling down I-220 when a black SUV pulled up alongside him and opened fire on the car, striking it and Jackson multiple times. Jackson was taken to Ochsner LSU Health Hospital where he later was pronounced dead.

According to his arrest affidavit, police were able to develop Anderson as a suspect through his live-in girlfriend along with a Crime Stoppers tip. Police say a search warrant executed in Anderson’s residence recovered 3 handguns, including one that matches the caliber of the weapon used to kill Jackson.

In an interview with investigators, the affidavit says, “Anderson denied being involved in the shooting, but claimed to have details of the shooting/murder, which were supplied to him by co-defendant Kolby Moore. Anderson’s girlfriend advised investigators that he told her he was involved in the murder. Anderson advised investigators that they knew they guy was dead because he didn’t move, but that it was the wrong victim too.”
