A man being held on other charges after the shooting of a woman in Olin Heights on Monday has now been charged with the shooting. 

Roderick Bo Jackson, 29, of Savannah, has now been charged with aggravated assault in the shooting of a 63-year-old woman who was in her back yard when she was injured Monday. 

Jackson had been detained on the first block of East 60th Street moments after the shooting. He was charged with obstruction and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. 

Jackson matched the description of one of two men seen running from the area after a woman was shot in her back yard four blocks away at Atlantic Avenue and Columbus Drive at about 1:40 p.m. 

According to SCMPD, Jackson is a twice-convicted felon most recently released from the Valdosta Transitional Center in 2011 after serving 21 months of a six-year sentence for armed robbery.

A second man matching the description of the other suspect was detained as well but no charges have been filed against him. 

The investigation into the shooting continues.
