Former NBA Player Javaris Crittenton Charged In The Shooting Death Of Jullian Jones

Wow, is all I can say. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that former NBA player Javaris Crittenton faces a homicide charge in the death 23-year-old Jullian Jones.

Javaris Crittenton faces a homicide charge in the death Jullian Jones, according to Carlos Campos, APD spokesman.

Crittenton is not in custody and is believed to be in the Los Angeles area, Maj. Keith Meadows said. The FBI is involved with the investigation, and Atlanta authorities are hoping Crittenton will turn himself in, he said.

Jones was walking with others near 2915 Macon Drive in southwest Atlanta around 10 p.m. Aug. 19 when she was shot, Campos said.

Police believe Crittenton fired shots from a black Chevrolet Tahoe, Meadows said. There were several witnesses to the incident, he said.

Jones, a mother of four, was struck in the hip and later died during surgery. Two men walking with Jones fled and were not injured. Investigators believe one of those men was the intended target.

Crittenton may have been seeking retaliation after being robbed April 21, 2011, Campos said.

For those of you who forgot, Crittenton was involved in a December 2009 locker room incident with then-Washington Wizard teammate Gilbert Arenas where the two pulled guns on each other. He pleaded guilty and was given a year of probation on a misdemeanor gun possession charge.

If Crittenton is guilty of this awful crime then he needs to be thrown in jail for life. A young woman’s life was cut short and four children lost their mother. My prayers go out to her children, family and friends.

  • Jullian was gunned down like a dog. Jullian Jones is my daughter. I don’t want death for the person who shot her, I want life in prison for him or them that was involved in the death of my daughter and justice for her children (2girls and 2 boys) my grandchildren.
