Roughly a block away, deputies found 41-year-old Derrick Antonio Jones suffering from multiple gunshots in a wrecked vehicle. Jones was pronounced dead at the scene. A female passenger was also found in the vehicle unharmed.

The sheriff’s office said evidence suggests Jones went to an apartment on 66th Street and spoke with the 46-year-old while the female waited in the car.
