When they arrived the officers encountered an estranged husband armed with a shotgun. As Officer Jones attempted to push the shotgun aside the man fired it, striking Officer Jones in the stomach. Officer Jones' partner returned fire and killed the suspect. Officer Jones succumbed to his injuries the following day.

Officer Jones had been with the agency for three years and was survived by his wife and child.
