Responding to an auto sale ad on Facebook, Jones reportedly, arranged to meet Fayaz in East New York to purchase the advertised Honda Pilot. However, when Fayaz and his brother-in-law arrived with $24,000 in cash to buy the vehicle, the suspect drew a gun on them.
After inquiring and ascertaining that the buyers were not armed, the suspect put Fayaz in a headlock and demanded the cash. When they told him the cash was not on them, Jones allegedly opened fire and struck Fayaz in the head.
The victim’s brother grabbed the Fayaz’s gun and fired back, but the robber managed to escape in a black BMW SUV. Following a city-wide manhunt, the getaway vehicle was located abandoned in Harlem, close to the where the suspect lives with his girlfriend.
Sources also said the BMW belonged to the suspect’s mother, who lived near the crime scene in East New York. Authorities believe Jones could be behind a similar robbery which took place near the shooting scene on January 13.
