Officer Brian Howard Jackson, 28, of the Dallas Police Department was shot and killed during a foot pursuit of a suspect through a residential area on Madera Avenue. Officer Jackson responded to a domestic disturbance call on North Henderson Street at approximately 0245 hours.
The suspect, illegal alien Juan Lizcano had threatened his ex-girlfriend and fired a handgun inside a house at the location.

The suspect entered a yard and hid, then opened fire on Officer Jackson with a .357 caliber handgun as he came through the front gate, striking him in the armpit. The suspect ran out of bullets and tossed the gun to the ground, gave up, and was taken into custody.
Officer Jackson was transported to Baylor Medical Center where he succumbed to the wound approximately one hour later. The suspect, who was an illegal alien, was charged with capital murder. Officer Jackson had served with the Dallas Police Department for 5 years. He is survived by his wife of two months
