On October 27, 2021 at 5:02 p.m., shots were reported at an apartment in The Vault Apartments on Statesboro Place Circle.  Officers discovered 18 year old Antonio Jackson deceased at that location from gunshot wounds.  Detectives began the investigation, which has lasted for approximately one month and resulted in multiple arrests over that period. 

The following individuals have been charged for their actions during and after the homicide itself:

All but Patterson are currently housed in the Bulloch County Jail awaiting further judicial action.  It is believed that the defendants also possessed stolen firearms, drugs, concealed evidence, and falsified information relevant to the homicide investigation.  Certain of the recovered firearms had been stolen from unlocked vehicles in apartment complexes around Statesboro. 

During the course of the homicide investigation, additional individuals connected to the above listed defendants were arrested on drug and firearms related offenses. 

  1. Jaquavious Pinkney (18, Jesup, Ga):  1 count Possession of Marijuana with Intent, 1 count Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime, 1 count of Felony Theft by Receiving Stolen Property, and 1 count of Carrying a Firearm on School Property
  2. Kevionta Nix (21, Jesup, Ga):  1 count Possession of Marijuana with Intent, 1 count of Tampering with Evidence
  3. Jorge Camacho (18, Freedom’s Landing Dorms, Statesboro):  1 count of Possession of Marijuana with Intent
  4. Marcus Trice (21, Jesup, Ga):  1 count of Possession of Marijuana with Intent

These four subjects were arrested during a search at Freedom’s Landing Dorms on Lanier Drive conducted based on investigative leads from the homicide case.  They were transported to the Bulloch County Jail and later posted bonds and were released. 

For various reasons, all these individuals established a presence in Statesboro and became involved in a variety of criminal activities.  Their arrests are the culmination of the combined efforts of SPD’s patrol officers, detectives, Impact Team officers, and investigators with Georgia Southern University’s Police Department.  Other agencies which participated in the homicide investigation are the Jesup Police Department, Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, and U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force. 

Treg Patterson is urged to turn himself in to the Statesboro Police Department on his outstanding warrants.
