On April 27, 1992 at about midnight, Yellow Cab driver Jackson Jones was dispatched to 4560 60th, Street, apartment #6 in San Diego to pick up a fare. Jones was not heard from after being dispatched. About thirty minutes later, a citizen flagged down a police officer and told the officer he had seen a driver of a taxi cab slumped over the wheel of his cab at 4100 Colts Way. Officers responded to the scene and located Jones seated in the driver's seat of his cab. Jones had been shot in the head and he died at the scene.The occupants of the apartment on 60th Street were contacted. They denied any knowledge of, or involvement in, the murder and they were subsequently eliminated as suspects. The shooter may have been familiar with the area and used the address as a ruse to bring the cab there for the purpose of robbing the driver.
