Former Laker Javaris Crittenton Charged With Murder

 

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton is currently wanted for murder. He has been charged in the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, a mother of four who was gunned down Aug. 19 on an Atlanta street. Crittenton allegedly killed Jones with shots fired from a dark-colored SUV, police said. Investigators don’t believe Jones was the intended target. Crittenton’s motive appeared to be retaliation for an April robbery in which Crittenton was a victim. He played 113 NBA games (including 22 with the Lakers in 2007-08), and was also a key piece in the trade to land Pau Gasol. Crittenton’s pro career was derailed by a gun-related incident involving Gilbert Arenas in the Wizards’ locker room during the 2009-10 season, leading to a lengthy suspension.
