Lord this world we live in is getting worse and worse everyday! A Memphis, TN man made a report to the police that ended up with his behind bars for murder!
WREG reports that on Sunday police responded to a call from Andre Jones off Amarillo Street. He told police that he found his father, Ronald Jones, and grandmother, Martha Jones, dead from gunshot wounds.
Police said they responded within one minute, having a car nearby. The first officer on the scene said that they were able to enter the house, and they noticed the smell of smoke and gunfire filled the house.
The officer checked the back door, and the storm door was undamaged. The officer noted the only other entrance was the front door of the property.
Of course the police detained Andre Jones for questioning but, in the meantime, the secured a search warrant for the home. While searching the home they found multiple shell casings near the body of each victim in their respective rooms.
Police said they found an empty 9mm magazine in Andre Jones’ room along with ammunition consistent with the shell casings on the floor. Police said they also found a gun with what appeared to be blood on it.
Now here's where things get even more crazy for Jones, in this day and age, you've got to be more careful when you plan to lie. Everywhere you go, in every neighborhood and street in this country, SOMEONE has video surveillance on their property. That's exactly how Memphis police got their smoking gun.
Police said they obtained audio/video from across the street, and they confirmed that no one entered or exited the residence. That was the last puzzle piece that they needed.
Now, Andre Jones was arrested and charged with two counts of first degree murder and the employment of a firearm while committing a felony.
No motive for these murders has been released at this time. Our prayers go out to the Jones family in the tragic loss of their loved ones.
