CITY HALL: 979-415-2400


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT 2 Over the course of the past couple of months, the City of Lake Jackson has experienced an unusual number of incidents involving gunfire being exchanged or targeted at certain apartments in and around at least three different complexes.

The police department has been working diligently to gather evidence and witness testimony to bring the criminals responsible to justice and bring an end to this activity. Although two arrests have been made in a recent case, the senseless activity continues, as recent as the early morning hours of today, 05/14/2021.

These strikes are believed to be centered around drug activity and continue because of retaliatory responses. Our investigation and patrol teams are making every effort to identify all those involved and gather evidence enough to make arrests, but, with the frequency and recklessness of these shootings, time is of the essence and we are asking for our community to get involved.

There have been very close calls with nearby innocents from the indiscriminate shooting in apartment complexes and this must be stopped. We know there are people not directly involved who have valuable information and we are appealing to their good conscience to come forward by contacting the police department.

These types of incidents are rare in our quiet community and we must all take part in closing the door on these criminals and let them know they are not welcome here. If you have any information that may help, please call Det. Collins at 979-415-2779 or Brazoria County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-460-2222
