The 55-year-old man accused of fatally shooting his roommate earlier this month in South Dallas told police he didn’t shoot the victim but said “he was not sorry he was shot,” according to an arrest-warrant affidavit.
Joseph Jackson remains in custody at the Dallas County jail on a $1 million bond for a murder charge, records show. It was unclear whether he had an attorney.
Officers responded the morning of Oct. 16 to Jackson’s home he shared with 31-year-old Fredrick Grant in the 2300 block of Pine Street and found Grant with a gunshot wound to his head, according to the affidavit.
Jackson’s girlfriend called 911 after hearing the men arguing outside the home and Jackson saying, “You think I’m playing?” multiple times before a single gunshot rang out, police wrote in the warrant.
Jackson was arrested nearby as first responders took Grant to the hospital.
He was initially booked on an aggravated assault charge but the charge was elevated to murder after Grant died in the hospital a day later.
A bullet matching the caliber of the gun used in the shooting was found in the porch area but the firearm had not been recovered as of last week, when the arrest-warrant affidavit was written.
