Nineteen year old Deandre Adolphus was charged for the murder of 29 year old Mark Anthony Jones. He was arraigned this afternoon and was remanded behind bars until his next court case. Investigators believed that Adolphus was the triggerman who killed Jones as he was entering his yard on George Frazer Street on Thursday night. Investigators also believe that Jones’ murder was a retaliatory action to a shooting incident that happened on January 27 on the same street. The house of Georgia Curry, the mother of Adolphus was shot at. Word on the street was that Jones was the person responsible for that shooting and was killed as a result. But Curry told Love News that her son is innocent.

GEORGIA CURRY

“My house got shot up right? Now this young man ended up getting killed they will try say it was a retaliation and it’s nothing like that because when I found out that the young man had shot up my house I didn’t approach him or disrespect him we didn’t have any kind of conflict, I didn’t even report it to the police I just left it like that. Because I will not go by word of mouth because I am not going to judge anybody. The young man not once disrespected me, we used to play cards on Antelope Street together, his sister sees me and she hails me, my son and this young man have no kind of conflict.”

LOCAL REPORTER

“And you’re confident that it was Mark Jones who shot at your house?”

GEORGIA CURRY

“People are saying that I never saw him people are saying that that is why I never approached the young man because I don’t want to judge him. I didn’t see him I just left it like that. When the thing happened I contacted Mr. Caliz but he didn’t’ respond to me right away so I called 911 then when I was conscious that my son was not inside I opened my door and I shouted for me. My neighbor came out and asked what happened and I told him to get in here. He asked me again what happened and I told him to stay inside. So now when he came inside he told me that he just went to take a chip for someone. I told him to stay inside because Mr. Williams had just spoken to him. Now this thing happened they are calling my son’s name.”

LOCAL REPORTER

“At the time of the murder of Mark Jones your son was where?”

GEORGIA CURRY

“At the neighbor’s house. As it happened I opened my door and I shouted for him to get in the house. Now they are ringing my son’s name because they saw him run up my step. Me personally I can’t take it, it hurts me. It hurts me because if Diangelo is a person who had problems with the law and was always being charged and stuff like that I could understand that but my son doesn’t have a record. Even when he got stabbed he was stabbed because of a girl.”

LOCAL REPORTER

“He is not a part of any gang or anything like that ?”

GEORGIA CURRY

“Well it’s because he hangs around Bruce at the neighbor.”

LOCAL REPORTER

“You were saying that some of the neighbors believe that Mark Jones’ murder was a retaliation to that; do you believe that maybe because the rumor was going about that he was the one that shot up your house maybe that one of your son’s friends or someone related to you may have taken actions into their own hands.”

GEORGIA CURRY

“That’s why I said the reason why I didn’t approach that young man is because I didn’t believe it, I never believed it was Mark, we played cards together and Mark had never disrespected me ever, we ever had any kind of conflict and neither did he and my son.”

Adolphus is scheduled back at court on the 28 of April.
