Family says Corey Jones was not violent

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Siblings and the father of Corey Jones are describing their brother and son as a kind, happy person who was not violent.

At a news conference in West Palm Beach after meeting with the state prosecutor, Clinton Jones Jr. said his brother “would not ever, ever, ever pull a gun on a policeman – never.”

A Palm Beach Gardens police officer fatally shot the 31-year-old Jones early Sunday along a dark Interstate 95 entrance ramp. Police have said a gun was found near Jones but they have not released the details about the confrontation between the two men, saying only that the officer was “suddenly confronted” by an armed man.

Jones’ sister, Melissa Jones, says her brother always “knew what to say” to make her smile and laugh.

His father, Clinton Jones Sr., says he raised his children to respect the law. He said he needs answers and says “why is my son gone?”
