We are reading and hearing reports that former Beltway Boxer Gary "Fast Hands" Jones has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Cinaway Morson this past Monday.
According to police reports, Jones allegedly shot Morson in the Sweet Soul Cafe and Lounge on Southern Avenue in Oxon Hill, MD just before 5 PM on January 13. Jones was the owner of the club. According to WJLA-TV, authorities received an anonymous tip that someone had been shot inside the building, which was closed to customers. When the police arrived, they found Morson shot to death. Police tracked down Jones a short time later and found what may have been the murder weapon.
The 35-year-old Jones (22-2, eight KO's) fought off and on from 1996-2011. Previous legal issues kept Jones away from the ring for almost eight years. Jones is the older brother of the fighting Russell Family.
