LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say Anton Anderson has been arrested and charged with a murder that happened earlier this week at Beecher Terrace

Robert Jackson, 26, was shot to death Monday night at the housing complex. LMPD officers were called to Liberty Court near 13th Street at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

They found Jackson lying on the ground. Emergency workers rushed him to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 3:30 in the morning.

Police say Anderson approached Jackson at his home and forced him into a car at gun point. They say Jackson was taken to Liberty Court, where he was shot. 

"I just had an intuition feeling that something went wrong last night," Jackson's mother Sherrell told WDRB on Wednesday.

According to the Jefferson County Coroner's Office, the cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds.

Anderson is also charged with kidnapping, robbery and murder. He is scheduled to appear in Court March 6.
