He ran away after the shooting.

An-off duty officer later saw him driving more than 100 miles per hour.

Jones' vehicle passed a Department of Public Safety Officer, and the DPS Officer stopped him.

The vehicle Jones was driving turned out to be stolen.

Officers also found a handgun on the driver's seat of the vehicle.
