PINELLAS COUNTY – Detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit are investigating a shooting in North Redington Beach that occurred during an occupied residential Burglary.

On Wednesday, December 27, 2023, at approximately 3:16 a.m., deputies assigned to the Patrol Operations Bureau responded to 16400 Gulf Boulevard in North Redington Beach for reports of a male subject, later identified as 51-year-old Robert Jackson, standing in the roadway of Gulf Boulevard yelling.

While deputies were responding to the initial call, a second 911 call was received at 3:23 a.m. at 208 Bath Club Boulevard North, reporting a residential Burglary. Upon arrival, deputies located Jackson in the roadway on Bath Club Boulevard with a single gunshot wound. 

Through their investigation, detectives state Jackson was the male subject who was standing in the roadway of Gulf Boulevard yelling before traveling east on Bath Club Boulevard. Jackson then smashed through the front window of 208 Bath Club Boulevard using a large rock and entered the residence. Once inside the residence, Jackson encountered 74-year-old Sherry Treadwell and began to struggle with her physically.  Sherry’s husband, 76-year-old John Treadwell, heard her scream his name in distress and saw her struggling with Jackson. Fearing for his and his wife’s safety, John retrieved his firearm and shot Jackson once in the right shoulder. Jackson fled the residence and then attempted to break into another nearby residence unsuccessfully. After the failed second burglary attempt, Jackson fled down the street, where he was stopped by responding deputies.

Jackson was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Jackson is charged with Burglary with Battery and Attempted Residential Burglary. Jackson will be transported to the Pinellas County Jail once he is released from the hospital.

Detectives state this incident was a random act and there is no danger to the public.

The investigation continues.

Jackson’s Booking Photo is currently unavailable.
