Murder of Karl Jackson
Bronx resident Karl Jackson was a 21-year-old data entry clerk at Morgan Stanley. On Halloween night 1998, Jackson went with his girlfriend to pick up her young son from a party. While there, some teenagers threw eggs at their car, but the classic Halloween prank soon turned ugly.
Jackson got out of his car, exchanged words with the teens, and got back in the car. Then one of the teens pulled a gun and shot Jackson, killing him instantly. Police later arrested 17-year-old Curtis Sterling for the murder.
