Donte Jackson Arrested For Shooting Incident In Dalton On Monday

Friday, December 1, 2017

The Dalton Police Department arrested Donte Elijah Jackson Thursday night on charges related to Monday evening’s shooting on Wrinkle Street that left a Dalton man with gunshot wounds to his face and shoulder.

Jackson, 20, of Dalton, has been charged with two counts each of armed robbery, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment, along with one count each of tampering with evidence, and aggravated battery. Further charges are possible for other individuals involved in the case.

Dalton investigators say that on Monday at approximately 5 p.m., 19-year old Nathan Brett Hastey and 17-year old Elijah Damon Ensley went to the apartment at 408 Wrinkle Street to sell marijuana to 18-year old James M. Walton and Donte Jackson. Instead of going through with the marijuana transaction, however, DPD investigators have determined that Jackson and Walton instead intended to rob Hastey and Ensley. Investigators determined that Jackson produced a handgun and the robbery attempt led to a fight between the parties. There was a struggle for the gun, and during this struggle a gunshot was fired that struck Walton in the head and exited through the other side of his face and ended up lodged in his shoulder. At this time, investigators are not releasing more details about this part of the incident.

Walton remains hospitalized in Chattanooga in stable condition. This case is still being investigated by the Dalton Police Department and further charges against the parties involved are possible.
