After the initial altercation, guns were drawn by Gregory Jackson and Micah Townes,” Joanne Pescatore, chief of the homicide unit at the Philadelphia DA’s Office, said. “Gregory Jackson shoots at Micah Townes first. Micah Townes returns fire, shooting and killing Gregory Jackson. As a result of that, Quran Garner then begins to fire down the street, toward South Street, toward where the initial confrontation took place. It is at that point that Philadelphia police began to shoot after Quran Garner pulls a gun, has the gun out and looks in their direction.

They shoot at him, shooting his hand. He’s currently at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital undergoing surgery for a result of injuries sustained when the police shot back at him.” Prosecutors said the gun Garner used was a ghost gun with an extended magazine.
