21 year old James Jones placed his body over his mom while bullets charged the both of them at their Chicago home, injuring the mom and Jones being killed in the process. According to the Chicago Sun Times, a man appeared from a gangway and shot at James and his mother Alicia Jones. After James created a physical blockade, his mother was taken to the hospital and had to undergo surgery. Alicia survived, James did not.
Aunt and sister to Dietra Luckett stated:
“My sister just so happened to be coming out the front door, He took his body and put it on top of her body. He covered her body.”
She also said that James had returned from buying a loose cigarette when the incident occurred, he was out on parole after serving his sentence for attempted burglary.
The family has yet to reveal to Alicia that he is gone because she is recovering from surgery. Unfortunately, James is her third child to die at the hand of gun violence. At the crime scene there was a note left that said, “I love you.”
The police are currently investigating this matter and hope to find answers. Either way, RIP to James and pray for his family.
