Police said they believe JuJuan “Mook” Jackson, 33, was targeting the woman, who is his ex-girlfriend.

Both victims were taken to Jameson Hospital. Johnson was later flown to St. Elizabeth Health Center, where he was pronounced dead around 9:45 a.m. Thursday. The female has been released.

Police are still searching for Jackson, who they say has an outstanding warrant for an attempted homicide in 2015. He is on the New Castle Police Department’s Most Wanted list.

Police believe that Jackson left after the 2015 crime and recently returned to the area. They said Jackson is considered armed and dangerous.
