Jackson suffered a gunshot wound to the body and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 7:27 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the same neighborhood as the shooting.

Police were speaking with a person of interest Monday night. Area South detectives were investigating.
