Update: Johnson City man accused in shooting near ETSU charged with campus burglaries

Jaqwayle M. Madison



A Johnson City teenager charged with shooting into an apartment complex near East Tennessee State University now faces auto burglary and theft charges  from incidents on campus, court records show.


Jaqwayle M. Madison, 18, general delivery, Johnson City, shot 21-year-old Joshua R. Peterson in the Sept. 15 incident in a parking lot at Campus Ridge Apartments, 1301 Seminole Drive, police said.


Madison also admitted to burglarizing two apartments at the same complex.


City police filed those charges on Wednesday. On Thursday, ETSU Det. Brandon Powell filed a court affidavit charging Madison with four counts of auto burglary and one count of auto theft over $1,000.


The auto burglaries happened Sept. 15, according to the affidavit, and one of the vehicles was stolen. IT was later recovered, but the victim’s belongings had been taken.


Around 10:30 a.m. the following day, Sept. 15, police found Peterson who had been shot in the leg during a robbery in the parking lot. He was treated at Johnson City Medical Center, undergoing surgery to repair a shattered shin bone.


Peterson told police a man he did not know tried to rob him as he slept in a friend’s vehicle. The man shot him once in the leg, shattering his shin bone. In surgery, doctors placed a titanium rod from Peterson’s knee to his ankle.


On the same day as the robbery, police received reports from two residents of Campus Ridge Apartments reporting that their apartments were burglarized early that morning.


Over the course of the investigation, police developed Madison as a suspect. Police said he had sold property stolen in the Campus Ridge burglaries to his mother.


In that case he was charged with especially aggravated robbery and two counts of aggravated burglary. He was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $91,000 bond on all the charges.


Madison also was charged Wednesday with shoplifting resulting from an Aug. 7 incident in the Mall at Johnson City. In a court record, police said he was one of three men who stole clothing from Belk. A customer got a tag from a minivan seen leaving the scene. Police contacted the vehicle’s owner, who reported that his daughter had been driving the minivan that day in the company of a man he knew as “J Madison.” Police used surveillance video from the store to identify two of the three men, including Madison. His bond was set at $1,000 on the shoplifting charge.


The September shooting was the second at Campus Ridge this year. In May, Donovan Mitchell Johnson, 21, 1313 E. Chilhowie Ave., was charged with shooting Christen Gray, 23, in the leg at the complex during an argument. Police also said he tried to shoot two men at an East Maple Street residence the same day.  Johnson was charged with attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
