After being dropped off, someone ran up to him and shot him multiple times, a source told Cleveland19.com.

“Mayor Jackson, police officers, and an agent from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms arrived at the scene late on Sunday, according to local media. Police have not released further details of the shooting or mentioned if any other victims were reported,” The Daily Mail reported.

“Frank Q. Jackson had a lengthy rap sheet and multiple run-ins with police in recent years that included gun and drug possession charges as well as assault charges. In 2017, he was charged with knowingly concealing a weapon,” The Daily Mail added.

The report continued:

In 2019, he pleaded guilty plea to misdemeanor assault after a fight with his girlfriend and was currently facing felony assault charges related to an incident in July where he allegedly dragged while trying to flee from police in his car.

He pleaded not guilty to those charges and was out of jail on $10,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in court in November.

Frank Q. Jackson was also questioned as part of a murder investigation after a car registered to him was seen leaving a crime scene, but no charges were ever filed.
