Motel Shooting

Los Angeles: A man was shot to death in a motel parking lot in south Los Angeles early Sunday morning.

On April 1, 2007, at 1:00 A.M., Gerald Anthony Jones, 33, was dropping off his companions at the Cornett Motel located in the 6300 block of South Crenshaw Boulevard. A few moments later, the suspect, a male Black arrived with a female companion and attempted to rent a room. When he was told there were no more rooms available, the suspect became angry and returned to his truck. The man then called Jones over to him and as Jones walked to the pickup the suspect shot him in the chest.

Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and pronounced Jones dead.

The suspect is described as a male Black, about 5'7 tall, heavy build, and approximately 30 years old. The woman was described as a female Black about 35 years old. The suspect was driving a newer model black Ford F-150, crew cab with possible paint transfer to the right front and right side bumper.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective David Craig of Operations-South Bureau Criminal Gang/Homicide at 213-485-1383. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
