On July 6, 2010, at approximately 1:00 a.m., the three defendants, all armed with handguns, committed a home invasion of Apartment 930 at 77 Locust Hill Avenue in Yonkers, New York.

Their intent was to rob the occupant of what they thought was a considerable amount of money located there.

Nine people were inside the apartment at the time.

During the course of the burglary, the defendants threatened to kill all the occupants including two children, ages five and eight.

All three defendants, notwithstanding the tenants’ compliance with their demands, opened fire upon the occupants, killing two people and leaving four others with life-threatening gunshot wounds.

After the shootings, Jones fled the jurisdiction and was eventually arrested in Chicago.
 
Assistant District Attorneys Michelle Lopez and Julia Cornachio of the Superior Court Trial Division prosecuted the case..
