Covington, GA – A Fulton County sheriff’s deputy and her brother were gunned down by the deputy’s husband in an attack at her home last week.
Police said 28-year-old Fulton County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Deputy Shakeema Brown Jackson and her brother, 30-year-old Levoy Brown, were both shot multiple times in an attack at Deputy Jackson’s house on Oct. 27, WAGA reported.
Newton County sheriff’s deputies responded to the Windcrest Drive residence at approximately 10:30 p.m., WXIA reported.
Brown and Deputy Jackson both died as a result of their wounds.
Deputy Jackson’s husband, 28-year-old Jaquavia Jackson, was arrested on Oct. 29 and charged with two counts of murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, WAGA reported.
A judge denied bond during Jackson’s initial court appearance, according to the news outlet.
