28-year-old Jonathan Jordan was charged with vandalism, reckless driving, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, improper lighting on a motor vehicle, and disregarding a stop sign. He was pulled over for not having working headlights and going through a stop sign, but was later found to have fired shots near his father’s house and scratched the words “set up Ho” on the hood of a woman’s car.
On May 12th, Deputies McCondiche and SiriMartinez noticed a white Chevy Equinox en route from Sea Horse Drive to Holmes Road. Deputies noted the vehicle lacked functioning headlights with an unrevealed driver bearing a mask on their face. According to the affidavit, the vehicle failed to halt at the stop sign between the two roads, almost crashing into a sedan. The deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle at the intersection of Holmes and Ross Road.
The driver, later identified as Jonathan Jordan, then exited the vehicle, claiming that a woman was attempting to kill his father. Deputies proceeded to detain Jordan after he was ordered to lay on the ground. Jordan explained that the initial shots fired on Sea Horse Road came from himself and an unidentified woman. Jordan pleaded with police to check on his father, fearful of his current state. He also claimed to have flattened a tire belonging to Kimberly Ladd amidst the gunfire.
When deputies investigated the vehicle, a 9 mm pistol was recovered on the driver’s seat by the middle console. Found throughout the driver’s side and floorboard was a variety of different caliber ammunition.
Deputy Dickerson was dispatched to the same location on a call regarding shots fired. Dickerson talked to the victim, Charles Jordan, who explained that his son Jonathan opened fire and fled the scene in a white Chevy Equinox. Charles was awakened by his son, Jonathan, pounding on his front door at 1 a.m. The father proceeded to open the door, while his son continually exclaimed “They watching us.” Charles did not let his son in the house, leading to his departure shortly thereafter.
Following Jonathan’s withdrawal from his father’s house, Kimberly Ladd, a friend of the family, claims to have seen Jordan begin to back into the driveway of a neighboring residence, park and shoot six to seven shots outside of the home. Three individuals were inside the house at the time that Jordan opened fire. There were no reported injuries and all three denied medical attention.
Damage to Ladd’s vehicle was reported. Three bullet holes were shot into the passenger’s side door, two passenger tires were flattened and the words “set up Ho” were engraved on the hood of her gold Chevrolet Malibu. The damages to Ladd’s vehicle were estimated to be $1,300.
Jonathan Jordan was charged with vandalism, reckless driving, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, improper lighting on a motor vehicle, and disregarding a stop sign. His bond was set at $2,500.
