A 22-year-old woman sustained a gunshot wound to the sternum in an incident in the 1500 block of East Reynolds Street around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Detectives with the Springfield Police Criminal Investigations Division arrested Dae’von J.C. Jackson, 23, of Springfield for reckless conduct.

SPD Commander Sara Pickford said the shooting happened inside the residence, where the woman was found by officers.

Pickford, reached Sunday, did not identify the woman.

The victim was reported to have life threatening injuries Saturday when she was taken to HSHS St. John’s Hospital, but her condition was upgraded Sunday to “stable,” according to Pickford.

Jackson and the woman had an “on and off domestic relationship,” Pickford said. It was not immediately clear if the couple was living together.

Pickford said detectives were continuing to work on a motive.

Two other adults and two children were inside the residence at the time of the incident. The adults were interviewed, Pickford said.

She didn’t immediately know the relationship between the two adults and two children to Jackson or the woman.

Pickford said neighbors talked to by officers said they did not hear a disturbance in the residence before the shot.

The call to SPD came in as a 911 from someone inside the residence, Pickford said.

Evidence from the scene was recovered, she added.

Jackson is in the Sangamon County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
