Randy A. Jackson, age 39, of Clinton, Iowa, was pronounced dead at a hospital in Urbana at 6:03 in the morning on Tuesday, as stated by the information that was supplied by Duane Northrup, the Champaign County Coroner. Jackson was from Clinton. On the evening of Monday, July 3, at 7:47 p.m., troopers from the Illinois State Police assisted deputies from several agencies in a chase of a car driven by Jackson, who was also a suspect in a homicide that happened as a result of a separate shooting incident that took place in Clinton. Jackson was driving the vehicle. Both Vermilion and Champaign counties were covered during the chase of the suspect. Jackson was behind the wheel of the automobile.
During the course of the pursuit, the authorities lost sight of the vehicle for a little period of time; however, they were able to locate it once again in the area of 2200 County Road 2250 East. After completing a search of the surrounding area, an officer with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources spotted Jackson hiding in a garage that was not tied to any building. ISP Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) personnel and Crisis Negotiation Team officers were sent to the scene after it was reported by state police that the subject was holding a standoff with them at the location in question. According to the information provided by the ISP, Jackson’s failure to comply was the root cause of a trooper shooting their firearm, which resulted in Jackson receiving injuries that led to his passing at the hospital.
A postmortem examination is scheduled to take place on the afternoon of Friday, July 7, 2023. At this time, an investigation into this fatality is being carried out by both the Illinois State Police and the Office of the State Coroner.
