Annapolis man arrested for October shooting that sent man to hospital

An Annapolis man was arrested Tuesday and charged with attempted murder after city police say he shot a man earlier this month.

The man who was shot sustained non-life-threatening injuries and made his way to Anne Arundel Medical Center, where Annapolis police officers responded Oct. 2 around 8:20 a.m.

Police said investigators learned the shooting occurred at an address on Kirby Lane, just off West Street, and eventually identified a suspect. Detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest on Oct. 15, court records show.

Eleven days later officers found Aatif Jackson, 27, in the area of Forest Drive and Chinquipin Round Road Tuesday and took him into custody without incident, police said.

Jackson, of Hicks Avenue, has been charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, as well as robbery, two counts of assault and reckless endangerment, according to online court records.

He’s also alleged to have committed almost half a dozen firearms offenses, including possessing a gun while in possession of drugs and possessing a gun despite having been convicted of a felony.

Jackson is being represented by the Office of the Public Defender in the District Court in Annapolis. Court records do not list a specific attorney for Jackson, and the supervising attorney could not immediately be reached Tuesday afternoon.

He is being held without bond, court records show.
