Prosecutors say the shooting occurred when Jackson and another man came to Hendley’s home to buy marijuana and a dispute erupted. Officers found bullet holes in the walls of the defendant’s house along with his wallet.A witness identified Hendley as the shooter, and he later confessed to authorities that he shot Jackson because he and other gangsters were trying to force him into the Bloods.Hendley initially said he shot Jackson is self defense, but Assistant Mercer Prosecutor Tom Meidt said he may have been under duress, but that could not be considered self defense.
