Anderson shooting victim had police record


Quayshawn R. Jordan, 21, the victim of a fatal shooting Sunday in the 1600 block of Chase Street, had a criminal history dating back to at least 2011.

Arrests and charges against Jordan included:

Dec. 5, 2013: Targeted by the Madison County Prosecutor’s office with a complaint for civil forfeiture of property.

November 2013: Arrested and charged with Class D felony dealing in marijuana, hashish or a synthetic drug.

August 2013: Charged in Madison Circuit Court 3 with Class C felony battery committed by means of a deadly weapon or resulting in serious bodily injury and Class D felony of criminal recklessness inflicting serious bodily injury. A trial was set for Feb. 14.

October 2011: Arrested after alleged involvement in a gunfight in the 1000 block of Nichol Avenue. 

Jordan was a passenger in a car being driven by Dayquain Swain. Police said they found two bags of suspected marijuana on the passenger floorboard, and a search of Jordan revealed eight bags of suspected marijuana and cash.

Jordan was charged in Anderson City Council on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana and dealing in marijuana. He entered a plea of guilty to the charge of dealing in marijuana in March 2012, and the second count was dismissed.

A trial date was set for Jan. 9 on a probation violation in connection with the guilty plea. As a condition of his probation, Jordan was to seek substance abuse treatment. He was required by the court to show proof that he had completed treatment by Aug. 13.

March 2011: Arrested by Anderson police on charges of Class B felony burglary, Class D felony theft and Class A misdemeanor resisting arrest.
