Former NBA player and Georgia Tech star, Javaris Crittenton, is wanted in the shooting death of a 23-year-old mother of four in Southwest Atlanta last week. The player allegedly shot the woman attempting to shoot at a person she was walking with. The mother, Jullian Jones, was shot in the leg and later died in surgery. The police believe the shooting was in retaliation for a robbery of his jewelry back in April and it is believed that he is somewhere in Los Angeles. The Atlanta Police are working with the FBI to apprehend him.
Originally selected in the first round of the 2007 NBA Draft, Crittenton was traded his rookie year to the Memphis Grizzlies. While playing for the Washington Wizards, he had an incident in the locker room with then-teammate Gilbert Arenas where the two pulled out guns on each other. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun possession charge and received a year probation.
Javaris is from the Atlanta area and has a home in Fayetteville.
