Shot in the face in Manchester, he misses the Bronx
Manchester police have said little about the case, other than it happened just before 6:30 a.m. Friday at an Orange Street residence. Police said they could not initially speak to Jackson because a breathing tube was in his throat.
But Jackson's account differs. He said he let his shooter into the apartment. Jackson said he met the man at a friend's house and he seemed like a "cool guy." He would not name him and urged a reporter to contact police. The New Hampshire Union Leader was unable Tuesday to reach a detective involved in the case.
"He felt violated as a man," Jackson said.
But when the man showed up at his apartment, Jackson let him in.
"We started talking. Once I told him I got nothing for him, he started to get a little rowdy," Jackson said.
Then the man lifted the gun, which Jackson thinks was a .38-caliber handgun.
Jackson said it's the second time he's been shot. About a year ago, he was shot in the stomach in the Bronx.
Jackson said he was in Manchester visiting a friend and was watching over his apartment while the friend was on vacation. Now he is in the hospital on a liquid diet and has to wait six weeks before he can eat normal food.
