Police: Homicide victim killed in self-defense

By Alexis Stevens

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A 22-year-old Gwinnett County man who was shot to death at a neighborhood park was killed in self-defense, police said Monday.

Rashad Jones was found shot to death Tuesday night near the tennis courts in the River Stone neighborhood, located at Bridge Walk Drive and Oak Road, near Lawrenceville and Ronald Reagan Parkway, according to Gwinnett police.

Investigators previously said the shooting was the result of a rip-off scam gone bad. Neither Jones nor the alleged shooter lived in the neighborhood, which neighbors said is frequented by non-residents who treat the sports courts as though they were part of a public park.

But police now believe Jones, who was found with an unloaded gun, was the aggressor and that the shooter, whose name was not released, acted in self-defense, according to Cpl. Jake Smith.

No charges will be filed in the shooting death, Smith said.


Aren't we told here, with some frequency, that no-one needs to be able to defend themselves in public parks? I wonder what this man did that he so enraged someone as to entice them to attack with a lethal weapon in such a peaceful place?
