Woman Shot At Jackson Walmart
A Hardeman County man was jailed, Tuesday after police said he shot his wife outside of the south Jackson Walmart. Jackson police said 52-year-old Wallace Jimmerson and his wife, Nancy got into an argument before she left for work at Walmart on South Highland Avenue, Tuesday morning. “After their disagreement she came to work, she was scheduled to be at Walmart at 11 a.m., and unbeknowest to her, he followed her,” said Jackson police Lieutenant Tyreece Miller. As she was walking along the parking lot, police said her husband tried to run her over with his truck. Then Jimmerson is accused of getting out of the truck and shooting her several times. “I was in my car, and I just froze,” said eyewitness Jenna McPeake. “I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to have to lay down in my car ‘, cause I was scared he was going to turn around and start shooting.” Investigators said Jimmerson then took off in his pickup truck. Troopers spotted him and followed him to his home on Teague Road in Toone and arrested him. Nancy Jimmerson, who has been married to Wallace for 20 years, “suffered an injury to her right arm and to both legs with shot gun pellets,” Lt. Miller said. “She was transported to the Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and she’s admitted and she’s in stable condition, so we anticipate her to fully recover.” Lt. Miller said Jimmerson faces charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment for firing his shot gun in the parking lot, putting the public at risk.
