Man arrested after threatening to shoot people during Southern homecoming parade

WVLA Michael Scheidt - BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - A 27-year-old man previously involved in a shooting was arrested and booked on terrorizing allegations after threatening to shoot people during the Southern University Homecoming Parade Saturday, according to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office. 

According to arrest records, the suspect, Michael Jackson, lives close to the parade route.

Jackson was reportedly involved in a shooting in this area on Aug. 17, 2017, according to arrest records.

Jackson posted a picture of himself on social media and made threats that caused "serious concern and disruption to the general public." The picture shows the suspect with a silver revolver in his right hand and what appears to be a military issue body armor vest.  

According to authorities, Jackson was "actively engaging with others on social media in reference to this set of events."

Officers then went to the residence located on Curtis Street, where Jackson's mother said he did not live there.

Detectives left a card and advised the mother he is supposed to stay at her residence as terms of his bond on previous charges, according to arrest records.

Jackson later called detectives and said he was at his mother's residence.

Deputies then contacted Jackson and placed him in custody.

Jackson was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of terrorizing.
