The Wichita Police Department has arrested 18-year-old Pierce Jackson of Wichita on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and an outstanding warrant, stemming from an August shooting that left 33-year-old Jerome Armbeck dead. 
Jackson was located and arrested in Dallas, Texas.  He was transported to Wichita and booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on Tuesday.  This is the third arrest related to the murder of Armbeck.  WPD previously arrested 20-year-old Marcus Lamar and a 17-year-old male. 
It started on Monday, Aug. 19th.  According to the WPD at approximately 6 p.m. officers responded to a shooting call in the 4600 block of east Boston.  Upon arrival, Armbeck was found in an open field with multiple gunshot wounds to his body.  A WPD officer began rendering life-saving aid until EMS arrived.  Armbeck was pronounced dead on the scene.
The investigation revealed a disturbance occurred between Armbeck, Jackson, Lamar and the 17-year-old male in the 4600 block of east Boston when a suspect fired multiple times from a firearm, striking Armbeck. According to the WPD this was not a random incident, and is drug related.
