3 charged with shooting at Tenn. teen, taking Xbox

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — Police in Tennessee have charged three adults with shooting at a 13-year-old and taking an Xbox video game console from him.

A Jackson police news release said one of those charged, 22-year-old Rasheka Sampson, had reported her Xbox stolen during a burglary last week and then confronted a teenager she saw walking down the street with game equipment Wednesday.

Authorities said Sampson's boyfriend, 21-year-old Skylar Reeves, took the Xbox and then fired at but missed the youth, Isaiah Jones. Police said the Xbox serial code proved it wasn't Sampson's but they haven't yet determined who owns it.

Aggravated robbery and theft charges were filed against Sampson, 25-year-old Marilyn Horne and Reeves, who is also charged with aggravated assault. They remained in jail Thursday, and jail records didn't indicate if they had attorneys.
