SAN ANTONIO – Bexar County deputies arrested a 22-year-old man who they said robbed a former high school friend at gunpoint outside a local barbershop on the city's far West Side.

In an arrest affidavit, the gunman is identified as Kennon Jackson.

The victim told deputies he drove to a barbershop located in the 2800 block of Quiet Plain Drive on Aug. 29 and was sitting in his vehicle when he spotted Jackson in the parking lot. He said Jackson was a friend from high school and had told him to sit in the passenger seat.

But after catching up, the victim told deputies that's when Jackson pulled out a handgun and demanded his wallet, car keys and cellphone, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit stated Jackson was seen on surveillance video running away to a nearby neighborhood while holding the handgun and stolen items.

Jackson is now being charged with aggravated robbery, a second-degree felony. His bail has been set at $75,000.
