Banning Man Accused of Murder in Shooting Outside Beaumont Nightclub

Demario Anton Jackson, 25, of Banning, was booked at 2:55 a.m. Wednesday on suspicion of murder in the shooting of Andy Albarran in the 500 block of Beaumont Avenue early Saturday, July 16, according to inmate records and a spokeswoman for the city of Bea

A Banning man was identified Wednesday as the alleged gunman suspected of murder in a shooting outside a Beaumont nightclub that was followed by an officer-involved shooting early Saturday.

Demario Anton Jackson, 25, of Banning, was booked at 2:55 a.m. Wednesday on suspicion of murder at Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside, according to inmate records and a city of Beaumont spokeswoman.

Early Saturday, Jackson allegedly shot and wounded Andy Albarran, 46, of Beaumont, who died later Saturday at a hospital, according to Beaumont police and Riverside County coroner's officials.

Jackson, subsequently shot and wounded by a Beaumont police officer early Saturday, had been recovering at a hospital in Moreno Valley.

About 1:50 a.m. July 16, a Beaumont police officer was checking reports of a fight in the 500 block of Beaumont Avenue when he saw Jackson shooting another man, later identified as Albarran, city of Beaumont spokeswoman Darci Mulvihill said.

"The officer ordered Jackson to drop the weapon and after he refused, the officer shot him believing he was going to continue shooting," Mulvihill said in a statement released Wednesday.

Albarran and Jackson were transported to local hospitals, where Albarran succumbed to his injuries later Saturday, according to Mulvihill.

Jackson was arrested by sheriff's Central Homicide Unit investigators early Monday at Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley, according to inmate records.

Jackson's bail was listed at $1 million. He had a court appearance scheduled Wednesday, according to inmate records.

Both shootings were being investigated by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Anyone with further information was urged to contact Investigator Button with the Sheriff’s Department at (760) 393-3500 or the Detective Bureau of the Beaumont Police Department at (951) 769-8500.

Information can also be sent to crimetips@beaumontpd.org or reported anonymously to WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME.

While this or any shooting in my community disturbs me a lot, it seems here that the cops investigating this incident are doing their jobs quite professionally. The cop who was first on the scene and shot the suspect is to be specially commended. Good job. Meanwhile, what the hell is going on in our Pass Area community. I don't like reading about shootings, killings, dead bodies found and identified, etc. Thanks to the Patch for shedding so much light on these awful stories. I would prefer they not happen, but we need someone like the Patch staying on top of the incidents.

This is all so sad and worrysome beyond belief. I hate that these things are happening. I pray that this craziness will end soon. Banning & Beaumont have separate governments, but The San Gorgonio Pass is really one beautiful community filled with wonderful people and we all share each others happiness, sorrow, and high hopes. Bless the victims and thier families that they find peace.... I agree with Mr. Ferrell, A big thanks to Patch, you have kept this community informed and brought it together like none ever before. Kudos to Guy McCarthy who is the glue that holds it all together and is always on the job!

Ya, you want to know what the hell is going on in our Pass? All this is happening in our once nice area/town because of the population explosion and craptacular "too close together,guess you like to hear your neighbor fart" tract housing that just HAD to be built out here and ruin a nice area. This town/area was never meant for this kind of growth. It was a nice little stop-over for folks on their way to Palm Springs and greed and other corrupt BS made it the hell it is now. Just look at downtown traffic... BS! And ya, I can say all this because I have watched it happen over the past 40 years that I have lived here and I have 8mm film and photos of it from the 1930's when my grandparents came up here and built their home. I understand SOME growth is inevitable, but this got WAY out of control, WAY too fast. So crime, murder, robbery, etc... is just going to be more and more I am sure. Get used to it.

Before we start quoting "facts" in this or any incident, let's wait until the law enforcement investigators have done their job and an official report is released. Then, if there is a conflict between what we may have heard on the street and what winds up in the report, then we can call for further investigation to get to the bottom of things. As it stands right now, there are no "facts" in this case, other than one person is dead and another is wounded and charged in his killing. It is sad for our community no matter how the facts get sorted out.
David Castaldo July 24, 2011 at 04:51 PM
This truly is an unfortunate event. A man dead. Another man shot and charged with murder. A gun at a night club. And an officer needing to use his weapon. Please do not make this anymore than what it is, a very poor use of judgment of use of a fire arm. As long as I am involved with the City of Beaumont, there will never be any need for black , white, brown, green, or blue issues in my town. Our community is above and beyond this. I am not advocating more gun control in California. What I saying it was a very poor choice to take a firearm to a nightclub or anywhere where alcohol was planned to be consumed. Some things don't mix well, and bullets and beer is one of them. Firearms are for hunting and personal defense and not for offense. One person with a gun, one human being dead. History, recent events, and common sense, easily there could be many many more injured or dead. Whatever, your views, Beaumont PD had no control of the circumstances before they arrived, and no one died or was injured (except for the dude firing a gun) after they arrived on scene.

witness says that mr jackson didnt even have a weapon sir.....and the incident that occured with the victim actually involved another man who was the same race as the victim...i am a woman of color and proud of it but,i see no color when it comes to other people,my family is a mixter of black,white,mexican,and many more...mr jackson wife is a woman of another race...so he himself wasnt races..people are judging him according to his past not with the situation at hand...mr. smith i pray you have a nice day

concerned citizen July 25, 2011 at 11:31 PM
What a shame that Beaumont PD even responded to that shooting call. Since "Mr Jackson" is so innocent, well then, he should have shot everyone in sight. Would that have been okay with you morons? What is wrong with you idiots? Do not commit a crime. What about this do you not understand? This is not a lawless society, even though you want it to be. There are laws. You do not carry a gun around with you. Since you have the criminal mentality, do not live in Beaumont. We do not need people like you living in our nice city. And please, when someone is about to commit a crime against you or one of your loved ones, DO NOT CALL THE POLICE.
roger dodger July 26, 2011 at 03:57 AM
jackson didnt shoot the victim with his finger. and if he didnt have a gun , then he wouldnt have been charged with it. and since you know jackson personally, you know what the shooting was about dont you!
ServingThisCountry July 26, 2011 at 05:29 AM
If a cop loses his life that doesn't excuse retaliation or him shooting someone without cause. The only dirtbag is you, so if he's such a dirtbag with a gun, how come nobody else at the scene saw a gun? And you're the only one thats a pathetic piece of trash, you make all these comments and accusations but only one person has has their story heard... the cop. I dont give a hairy rats ass how many cops died, that don't have nothing to do with this situation. Luvmyfam said they were there and the cop didn't say nothign just started shooting... and I've heard others say that nobody else saw any gun... so keep you faith in bad cops and maybe someday a BAD cop will be there to "help" you. I've known more cops with a power trip that good cops.... I'm sure you're an ex-cop or related to one, but just cause the one you konw "may be" a good cop doesn't mean that there aren't a lot of bad ones out there. So you can keep your cop friends and I'll stick to my friends.... Glock, Mossberg, and Sig Sauer.
GetTheFacts July 26, 2011 at 05:48 AM
You are truly ignorant Lori. I would like to know how you think you know these facts. Were you there no I don't think so keep your ignorant comments to yourself and think of all the families involved who are hurting. So before you comment on something you shouldn't be and forming an opinion based on no facts but only hear say you are completely ridiculous and should really be ashamed of yourself for sounding so dumb.
GetTheFacts July 26, 2011 at 05:52 AM
He deserved to get shot huh You sound dumb too. No ones deserves to get shot. Think of all the families involved one lost their life another almost lost his life. Come on Cindy. How about you just Shut you mouth period. I can't believe you can actually look yourself in the mirror knowing you have such hatred towards someone you know nothing about nor the facts of the case. How do we know this all wasn't a mistake and he was shot I bet it all happened very fast and the officer reacted. So quiet down and don't embarrass yourself no further have some dignity
GetTheFacts July 26, 2011 at 05:55 AM
You were doing well with your comment until the bullets and beer. You don't know the facts if alcohol was involved or who used guns your going. So you are completely ridiculous forming an opinion without the facts just off media hype. And you say your involved with the city wow poor city
GetTheFacts July 26, 2011 at 05:57 AM
Eileen maybe since everyone else is you should read the articles and get the media quotes correct before you comment and sound like a complete ass. Oh wait you already did that. The police were already there they said that themselves idiot. Then you go on a rant about shooting everyone your sarcasm is completely out of line and uncalled for thanks. Another ignorant person to add to the list
GetTheFacts July 26, 2011 at 05:59 AM
Roger Dodger Sarcasm and guess what you sound ignorant to. There are so many familes involved with this yet you find it appropriate to comment on a situation that has nothing to do with you. Find a hobby and do something with your life. Guess what your opinion doesn't matter to anyone.
ServingThisCountry July 26, 2011 at 06:40 AM
Rodger Dicker, You're right, he didn't shoot anyone with his finger, but according to witnesses he didn't even have a gun. You're blind faith in the police is laughable. HA HA HA. You are commenting on the basis on one cops story. Do you think if this cop messed up he would immediately admit to it or try to cover up? You dont need to answer cause everyone knows. Judge not lest ye be judged, you only know one side of the story so yo can't possibly make an educated evalutation of this case. So you say if he didn't have a gun he wouldn't be charged? How ignorant can you possibly get? You mean to tell me that everyone that is charged with a crime is gulity? What country do you live in? Not the country that I've put my life on the line for. People like me do something important so that ignorant people like you can have the freedom to be ignorant. What have you done for your country or community.
lil mama July 27, 2011 at 03:18 AM
OKAY SO ALOT OF THE ABOVE COMMENTS ARE JUST PLAIN STUPID LIKE CINDY WHO ARE YOU TOO SAY HE DESERVED TO BE SHOT GOD FORBID SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY GETS SHOT RATHER ON PURPOSE OR BY ACCIDENT REMEMBER BULLETS DONT ALWAYS HAVE A NAME THEN SEE IF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY IM SO SICK OF EVERYONE'S OPINION WHO KNOWS NOTHING BUT WHAT THE NEWS SAYS DONT BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR. THE LAW IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT JUST BECAUSE ITS AN POLICE OFFICER DOESNT MAKE IT OK. I CANT WAIT UNTILL ALL THIS IS OVER WITH ITS A SHAME HOW SO MANY PEOPLE SPEAK ON SOMETHING THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THAT'S PURE IGNORANCE
