Teen girl charged with murder in pot shop shootings
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) The second suspect in a robbery and deadly shooting at a Bakersfield medical marijuana collective has been charged with five felonies connected to the incident, according to court documents obtained Wednesday by Eyewitness News.
Miracle Jackson, 16, has been charged with two counts each of first-degree murder and second-degree robbery, as well as one count of participating in a street gang.
Jackson was arrested Aug. 8 in Las Vegas and is in the process of being extradited.
Police said Jackson was with the alleged shooter, 32-year-old Aaron Patrick Burris, during the deadly shootings July 17 at the First Reliable Marijuana Collective on Chester Avenue.
The murdered men were identified as 23-year-old Devin Daniels, of Bakersfield, and 55-year-old Tony Conrad Sherman, of Los Angeles.
Police said both Jackson and Burris committed the crime "for the benefit, in furtherance of, and in association" of a local street gang.
A court date for Jackson has not been set.
According to court documents, Jackson and Burris entered the facility's sales area with two people when Burris pulled out a firearm.
Jackson then ran out of the business to the car that the pair were driving and grabbed rags and pillow cases.
While Jackson was outside, Sherman was shot three times by Burris, who then instructed Daniels, an employee of the shop, to remove marijuana from the display shelves and money from the cash drawer, according to police.
Jackson returned to the store but was locked out of the sales area because of a security gate. Police said she then began wiping down counters and the door with rags in an "apparent attempt to remove fingerprints left by her" and Burris.
During this time, Burris returned to Sherman, shooting him for the fourth time, before shooting Daniels in the head after he turned over the marijuana and cash, according to the documents.
The entire incident was caught on surveillance video.
