Trackdown: Help find Nequacia Jacobs' killer

This week, Dallas police need help to track down the killer who fatally shot an 18-year-old high school senior in her family's apartment.

Nequacia Jacobs was a senior at South Oak Cliff High School. She was shot by someone who stood outside and fired into her second story window at the Highland Hills Apartments over the weekend. Her 16-year-old sister was also shot but survived.

The shooting happened around 2 p.m. last Saturday in the East Oak Cliff apartment complex. The bullets didn’t have a name on them but sadly found Nequacia.

“This area is a known area for violent crime to occur,” said Detective Andrea Isom. “People know who those people are, and they are the key to this case.”

Video shows the gunman walking to the breezeway and start talking to another person.

“The gentlemen were standing right here when the shots were fired,” Isom said. “They do not run. They do not scream. They seem to know the shooter and know what’s about to happen, perhaps.”

The shooter was wearing a black hooded jacket or sweatshirt with intricate writing down the left sleeve, light colored denim jeans, and red shoes with gold or white trim.

“He looks up. And as you see on the video, he just starts shooting in both windows up here multiple times,” the detective said. “You can clearly see him firing the weapon upwards multiple times at this apartment.”

The gunman turns around and leaves in a white Charger. It has domed hubcaps, black wheels, a spoiler and the front license plate is slightly bent.

Isom hopes someone will do the right thing and give up the people caught on tape.

“Someone knows the gentleman in the blue who knows the gentleman in the black with the writing on it,” the detective said. “We really want to get some answers on this case. The family is just devastated.”

A $10,000 reward is being offered in the case. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (214) 373-8477.
