An alleged sex act in West Jackson sent one man to the hospital with a gunshot wound. According to the Jackson Police Department, a 23-year-old man, who was dressed as a woman, picked up a stranger at a local gas station, and later turned into the victim of an armed robbery and shooting. Amber Embrasowell says while living and working in West Jackson, she has seen a lot of things, but this takes the cake. According to police, a 23-year-old Jackson man, dressed as a woman, pulled up at a Phillips 66 gas station around 1 a.m. Saturday morning, and ended up picking up another man who he did not know. Andrew Weatherington, a concerned citizen, adds, “I was shocked, couldn’t believe it. I mean I know it happened everywhere else, but I was totally shocked when I heard about it here in Jackson.” The story does not stop there. The police report shows the men then came to a nearby ball park on Hollywood Drive, which is about a block away, and had sex. Embrasowell, says, “That’s not something you definitely see all the time. It’s kind of crazy to me, but to each his own.” Now, this is where the series of events take a violent turn. Police say after intercourse, the stranger that the 23-year-old picked up, whipped out a gun, and demanded money. Reports then indicate that the money was handed over, but the man ended up shooting the 23-year-old anyway in the left shoulder, and left. Weatherington, says, “It’s very scary because when I used to live here, you can leave your doors open. You didn’t have this. It’s bad.” But residents here say there is one good thing that can come out of this, it can serve as a message to others. Weatherington, adds, “Don’t pick up strangers.” The victim, we are told, is believed to have been treated and already released. The description of the suspect is vague, a black man wearing dark clothing. If you know anything about this shooting, you are asked to call Jackson Police.
