On Nov. 12, 2016, Jackson fired multiple shots into a stranded car with the four women inside near 21st and Cleveland, fatally wounding Pennington.

Investigators said the car was stopped because of a broken axle and the women were calling for help. A witness said that Jackson opened the front passenger door and shot into the car.

More than 30 shell casings were found at the scene.

A witness told police that Jackson’s girlfriend had been in an altercation with Pennington a few hours before the shooting.

Jackson will be sentenced Aug. 6.
