Police say two teens on a crime spree are responsible for the capital murder of a Good Samaritan last week in the parking lot of a popular northeast Dallas bar.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, 19-year-old Justin Gerald Jones was the gunman who killed Donald Morrow. He is now charged with capital murder.
Last Thursday night, police say 36-year-old Morrow tried to stop Jones from robbing two people in the parking lot of Sherlock's off Central Expressway and Park Lane. The shooter fired at Morrow after the Good Samaritan tried to punch the suspect.
The affidavit also says Jones got away in a stolen car driven by 17-year-old Tierra Ladarryl Winters. She also is charged with capital murder.
Both suspects were arrested overnight.
Police say that getaway car was actually stolen the night before by Jones and another suspect in South Dallas.
Jones allegedly continued on a crime spree, police say, through Thursday night. That night, getaway driver Winters told officers she and Jones robbed several people before the fatal shooting at Sherlock's.
(NOTE: Myfoxdfw.com briefly posted Jones' mug shot photo, but Dallas police asked us to remove it in case victims in other cases can identify him.)
The affidavit says Jones admitted to shooting Morrow during police questioning, and both he and Winters provided details to police that only the perpetrator and the witness would know.
Both suspects are in police custody. Stay with FOX 4 News and myfoxdfw.com for further information.
