Jones and Lamont Gurdy were shot and killed during the incident, which occurred in the Buckhead area early Tuesday morning. Jones served as Sean "P.Diddy" Combs’ bodyguard for a number of years. Jones and Combs were acquitted of bribery and weapons charges in 1999, after the now infamous nightclub shooting inside of Club New York, in which Jamal "Shyne" Barrow was convicted.
Jones’ murder is very significant. Last month, Kirk Burrowes claimed in a federal lawsuit that Combs authorized the 1995 murder of Jake "Big Jake" Robles, a close friend of Suge Knight and member of the Mob Piru Bloods.
In a 37 page sworn legal document, Burrowes claimed Combs setup an organization dubbed "the enterprise," which took part in murder and extortion.
Burrowes claimed that Jones was the triggerman behind the gun that murdered Robles at an after hours party following Jermaine Dupri’s birthday celebration. Jones was never charged in the incident.
