An 11-year-old boy who was shot through his bedroom window may be paralyzed, according to court documents.

On Tuesday morning, Jackson appeared in probable cause court, where the magistrate set his bond at $250,000 for each count.

Documents read in court revealed that the boy, who was shot in the neck, suffered a spinal cord injury and is now possibly paralyzed from the waist down.


The shooting occurred early Sunday morning in northwest Harris County.

Authorities said the incident began with an argument between juveniles over a girl.

According to allegations read in court, Jackson and his middle school-aged cousin went to the house on Roth Forest Lane and fired four shots into an upstairs bedroom window, striking the 11-year-old boy and his mother.

The boy's grandmother declined to speak on camera Monday, but said her grandson remains in the ICU. 

Court records reveal Jackson has a prior history of gun violence.
