Robert Adam Jones, 24, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and simple battery in the death of his father.
At 3 a.m. Sunday morning, deputies responded to 212 Sawdust Trail off of Kings Bridge Road to a shooting. Deputies found Leroy Jones, 47, dead in the basement of the home with multiple gunshot wounds.
According to witnesses, the victim and his son had been involved in a domestic dispute inside the home. Both men were allegedly in possession of firearms during the dispute and the father was shot multiple times and died on the scene.
The son said the shooting was self defense and district attorney Brad Smith met with Jackson County Sheriff’s Office investigators Monday to review the case before a decision was made on whether charges would be filed.
