On July 13, 1990 a gunman opened fire on the car the Ron Jones Jr was riding in with three friends near 5th Street and Massachusetts Avenue, NW. The road rage incident left DC homicide detectives with few clues except a composite drawing of the killer. Jones, who was a star quarterback for the Norfolk State football team, had graduated only months earlier. He had been accepted into Howard University’s Law School when the shooting ended his life.
The full story is available from WUSA9. I have also embedded their video coverage.
