Crime

LAS VEGAS -- The U.S. Marshals have added a Las Vegas gang member to their 15 most wanted list.

The Marshals are looking for 25-year-old Robert Jackson. Police say on August 19, 2007, several members of the Squad Up and Wood gangs were involved in a fight in front of a bar on the Las Vegas Strip.

The incident started with the two groups throwing cans at each other. It turned into a fist fight and then shots rang out. The early morning shooting happened on the sidewalk in front of Margaritaville, near the Flamingo Hotel and Casino.

"I think because the incident just happened so quickly, that no one took time to really try and look at anyone," said Metro Capt. Curtis Williams the day of the shooting.

Police say Jackson, who is a known Squad Up gang member, fired five rounds from a handgun into the crowd, striking four innocent bystanders.

Police say Jackson has a violent criminal history that includes arrests for robbery with a deadly weapon, aiming a firearm at a person and drug possession. A $25,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his arrest.
