Kinston Homicide Victim's Girlfriend: "You Took Him From His Kids"

Kinston public safety officers continue to investigate a homicide that happened early Saturday morning as his family members say they're devastated.

Officers say 35-year-old Ronald Jackson was shot multiple times on new street around 12:15 a.m.

According to the incident report, Jackson suffered gun shots to his ribs, abdomen, and hip. Officers say Jackson was taken to Lenoir Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. His family says he has five children, ages 1 to 16, and he was a funny, nice person who loved to cook. Jackson's girlfriend of 10 years, Sepia Foye, says she hopes justice will be served.

"They didn't have to kill him. They didn't have to shoot him or whatever. I just don't get it. You took his life, but you took him from his kids," said Foye.

Kinston Police have not released any information about suspects.

    Its a shame how some people think they know him so well. Well guess what i know him personally and no he was not in a gang or nothing of the sort. There are stupid, reckless people out in this world that rather take other peoples lives rather then better there own. He was a great man and a wonderful father. Like they say the good die young. R.I.P Ronald....love you always. By the way if you didnt know him or what happened dont comment. get a life!

    @leroy I dont know who you think you are but you need to shut up bc you dont know what you are talking about! Mr. Ronald Jackson was a very nice man and a hard-working one at that. I worked with him and not a day went by that he didnt have a smile on his face at work. You should truly be ashamed of yourself. He truly loved his kids and I am so upset that this has happened. It is a tragedy.

    when will society decide enough is enough. politicians are much more interested in getting votes, than saving peoples lives and ensuring safety.
