The poster says Jackson is “considered armed and dangerous.” Lt. Dennis Ivey with YPSO said he is likely carrying a firearm.

His last known address is on Port Landing off J. Clyde Morris Boulevard in Newport News.

Investigators say the 17-year-old shot five bullets through the front door and into Peters, who died at the hospital.

He faces a felony count of conspiracy to commit robbery.

According to court documents, Jackson told investigators he was with the 17-year-old suspect and Lambert in the Windy Shore subdivision, where Peters lived, leading up to the shooting.
