The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $25,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest of a Las Vegas gang member who is on the 15 Most Wanted national fugitive list.

Officials are seeking 25-year-old Robert Jackson, a known member of the Squad Up gang, who allegedly shot four tourists on the Las Vegas Strip in August 2007 during a fight between rival gangs.

Jackson allegedly fired five rounds from a handgun at Wood gang members, but the gunfire instead hit tourists, officials said.

Authorities said Jackson faces a variety of charges connected to that incident, including unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, attempted murder with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon with substantial bodily harm, battery with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, criminal gang and ex-felon possession of a firearm.

Clark County officials have issued a warrant for his arrest. Metro Police have been working with the U.S. Marshals in Las Vegas to find Jackson.

Officials described Jackson as about 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighing 150 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

Authorities said he should be considered armed and dangerous. Jackson was previously arrested for robbery with a deadly weapon, aiming a firearm at a person and drug possession.

Anyone with information about Jackson is being asked to contact the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.
