WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Wichita Police Department reported Wednesday that they have arrested 18-year-old Pierce Jackson of Wichita on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and an outstanding warrant stemming from a shooting in August that left 33-year-old Jerome Armbeck dead.
Jackson was located and arrested in Dallas, Texas. He was transported to Wichita and booked into the Sedgwick County Jail. Police had previously arrested 20-year-old Marcus Lamar and a 17-year-old man in this case.
