After shots were fired, the car’s driver -whose name was not released – fled toward Chesapeake General Hospital, Amos said. Authorities finally stopped the car at a gas station in the 2200 block of North Battlefield Boulevard, where rescue workers pronounced Jackson dead at the scene.

The car’s driver has been cleared of any wrongdoing, Amos said.

No arrests have been made this far, Amos said.

The department is searching for a black male suspect with short dreadlocks for additional questioning, Amos said.

Amos refused to release additional information about the car-jacking.
