The shooting occurred around midnight Wednesday at the victim’s home on Aldrich Street in Aiken, where Jones was shot multiple times by men who burst into the home and began shooting. A woman was also shot in the leg and drove herself to the hospital with non life threatening injuries, authorities said.

“This was not a random crime. This house was targeted,” ADPS Capt. David Turno said.
