Andrea Jackson
Death sentence switched to life
On May 1983 at Boulevard and 26th streets as Police Office Bevel, 29, attempted to arrest Jackson, then 24, on a charge of filing a false police report about vandalism to her car. The shooting took place as Bevel struggled to get Jackson into a police car. After dropping her keys to catch Bevel off guard, Jackson fired six shots, striking Bevel four times in the head and two times in the shoulder.
A jury convicted Jackson of first-degree murder.
