Moreno Valley, California — On Friday, July 22, 2022, about 11:07 AM, deputies from the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to a report of a suspect claiming to have a gun and threatening to shoot someone at a business in the 15100 block of Perris Boulevard in Moreno Valley. When deputies got to the store, they found 49-year-old Jay Jackson in the parking lot, with one hand in his shorts pocket and told them he had a gun, the department said. Videos show deputies ordering Jackson to surrender, but he refused to comply.
