Jones, 36, and another man were gunned down outside of a night club in Atlanta,
according to sources.
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.
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.
