Alan "Al" Jackson, Jr (November 27, 1935 - December 1, 1975) was an American jazz musician and drummer. He was an African American from Memphis, Tennessee. He formed the funky group Booker T & the MG's.
Jackson was shot dead in his home at 3 am. His wife, who before this had shot him in the chest, said that a burglar came into their house, tied her up, and shot him when he came home. Police said that nothing had been taken from the house, and Jackson's wallet was still on his body. Police believe the person who shot Jackson was killed after a gun battle with police on July 15, 1976.[source?]
