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.

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

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

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.

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.
