DALLAS – Police have arrested a suspect said to be involved in the fatal shooting of a man at a South Dallas fast food restaurant last weekend.

Ozaveone Jackson, 18, has been charged with capital murder in the death of Leo Charles Mcfarland.

The 47-year-old was shot and killed as he fled three robbers who approached him in the drive-thru lane at Williams Fried Chicken at 2660 R.B. Cullum Blvd. at 1 a.m. on Saturday.

According to a police affidavit, Jackson and two other unknown men walked up to Mcfarland while he sat in his car beside the restaurant. Jackson, gun in hand, told Mcfarland, “Give me what you got.” 

Mcfarland replied, “I have nothing” and drove away. The affidavit says Jackson fired four shots at the vehicle. Mcfarland took a bullet to the shoulder and hit a utility pole four blocks away, coming to a stop.

He died at Baylor Hospital. An autopsy found the bullet went through his heart. 

Jackson was arrested on Tuesday on an unrelated warrant and was sent to the homicide unit. He waived his rights, the affidavit says, and told investigators he was trying to steal Mcfarland’s car and admitted to shooting him.

The two other men have not been arrested. Jackson's mugshot will not be released until after a photo lineup is given to witnesses.
