"I'm one of the older guys on this team and I want to leave this game on a good note and leave a good impression on these guys,” he said.
“I came a long way to be here and I want these young guys to see the good side of me as being a good basketball player, a guy that comes and gives 110 percent to win every day and does whatever he has to do for his teammates. I've got to start playing for them now, leading by example, not doing too much talking.
“Coach (Rick Carlisle) can take me out of the game and let me know when I messed up and I've got to take it. And they'll know they've got to take it, too."
Earlier: Gunfire follows Pacers fracas
Jackson, Jamaal Tinsley, Marquis Daniels and Jimmie Hunter had argued with another group of men outside the club at 5054 W. 38th St., Mount said.
“The Pacers said there had been some problems and they tried to extricate themselves,” Mount said.
One of the men punched Jackson in the mouth and then got into a vehicle and ran into him, police said.
“He was hit in the mouth,” Mount said. “He was bloodied up pretty good.”
The attackers fled after Jackson fired his handgun. Police do not know if anyone was injured or if the bullets struck the man’s vehicle.
Jackson, who has a valid permit for the gun, was limping but refused medical treatment at the scene.
“We’re not sure if he just went over the hood or he went over the whole car,” Mount said. Jackson told officers he would seek help from the team’s medical staff and trainers.
Tinsley and Daniels also had guns in their vehicles, Mounts said, but never pulled them during the incident. Tinsley has an Indiana gun permit; Daniels has a Florida permit.
A small amount of marijuana was found in Jamaal Tinsley’s car, Mount said, but no one was arrested because the drug can not be linked to any particular person.
“There’s no way of telling whose it was, hence no arrests,” Mount said.
Prosecutors are evaluating the evidence to determine if any charges are warranted, Mount said.
Jackson joined the Pacers in 2004. The club said it planned to release a statement about the incident later today.
In a Sept. 13 interview posted on Pacers.com, Jackson said he has a positive attitude is devoted to being a role model for his teammates.
"More than us playing hard and being young guys with a lot of energy, we’ve got to be smart," Jackson said.
"We’ve got to make smart decisions on the court and off the court. We’ve got to be smarter as far as leading the young guys and watching what we do."
