Jones was interviewed by detectives Wednesday and reportedly admitted fighting with his brother at their apartment. Authorities said a witness intervened and managed to break up the scuffle, but the two began fighting again.
After being separated a second time, Jones reportedly got a gun from his room and went downstairs, shooting his brother multiple times, authorities said. Clayton County police would not release the victim’s name Thursday because the fatal shooting stemmed from a “domestic violence related incident.”
Jones is charged with murder and one felony count of tampering with evidence, online records show. He remains held at the Clayton County Jail without bond.
