Matthew Jackson told Police he was laying down in the bedroom when he heard the front door open; he went to check it out. As he did, he saw an unknown male coming at him and a struggle ensued.  During the course of the struggle, Matthew Jackson indicated that he was shot in the left leg. Jackson said the man then let him go and ran out the back door.
