SAGINAW, MI – The Saginaw Major Crimes Unit (MCU) is investigating the homicide of a sixteen-year-old boy, Carmell Daron Jackson of Saginaw.
At approximately 8:00 p.m. on Saturday April 17th, 2021, the Saginaw Police Department and troopers with the Michigan State Police were dispatched to N. Harrison between Holland Avenue and Miller Street for a victim that had been shot multiple times. Carmell was unable to fight the injuries that he sustained from the bullets that tore through his body. He was pronounced Dead at the Scene.
Saginaw MCU continues to investigate any and all leads that they receive concerning this vicious attack on another person who was going about their business in their daily life. Those who are responsible need to be taken into custody and removed from the streets. If found guilty, they have lost the right to walk among us who make it a cornerstone of our lives to never allow guns to rule who and what we are.
When your young children hear on a continual basis from you, your friends and other family members the phrase “I am strapped up – you better be too” or other words that reference owning a gun for purposes of harming those who you fear will try to harm you first, those children will do everything they can once they find the means to get access to a firearm. They feel that it is a must to have to survive in this life. That cycle needs to be broke and it needs to start today.
Every time a child hears those words of getting a firearm, their life is more than likely being shortened dramatically because they know from their parents words and behavior that a firearm will allow them to win whatever fight or grudge they have with another person. You the parent are guilty of why your child is in prison or in a grave. You made having a gun a must to get through life. That is unacceptable.
Anyone with information pertaining to this shooting should contact the Saginaw Major Crimes Unit at 989-759-1289.
