BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - He became a central figure in last week's surrender of City Grill shooting suspect, Riccardo McCray, here at Channel 4.
Now an arrest warrant has been issued for community activist Darnell Jackson. This stems from a separate case. Jackson says he's being accused of tampering with a witness, but he denies the allegations.
Last week, community outrage flared up over Jackson's treatment by an arresting Buffalo Police officer during McCray's surrender. He claims the police are targeting him.
Jackson said, "Of course. They're mad at me because, because of what happened with that kid. How can I be a member of the community when I have to go through this?"
Jackson claims police surrounded a car, thinking he was in it. Jackson says he will turn himself in Wednesday morning.
