Early May 8, Dayton police responded to a residence in the 400 block of West Hudson Avenue on a reported shooting. When officers arrived, they found 18-year-old Kameron Dewberry with multiple gunshot wounds, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Dewberry was transported to the hospital, where he died from injuries. Jones was reportedly arrested the same day.

An initial investigation indicated the shooting stemmed from an argument that ended in gunfire, Dayton police Lt. Jason Hall said.

Jones was initially indicted on two counts of murder and two counts of felonious assault on May 14, according to Montgomery County Common Pleas Court records.
