Most people wouldn’t consider James Jones a good guy. He sold drugs, according to his family. He’d been in prison and was out on parole, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.
But Saturday, when a man started shooting at Jones and his mother on the South Side, the 21-year-old covered his mother’s body with his own, shielding her and saving her life, said Dietra Luckett, Jones’ aunt.
“My sister just so happened to be coming out the front door,” Luckett said. “He took his body and put it on top of her body. He covered her body.”
Alicia Jones, 46, was wounded but survived. She underwent surgery at Advocate Christ Medical Center.
She knows her son saved her life, Luckett said, but doesn’t know he’s gone. Her sister said she’s been asking for him, saying, “Where’s James?”
The shooting happened around noon in the 8400 block of South Colfax in South Chicago. James Jones and his mother were on their front porch when a man walked out of a gangway and fired in their direction, the police said.
Luckett said her nephew had just gotten home from buying loose cigarettes at a neighbor’s home.
She said while he was there, someone “said something to him,” but James Jones “just rolled off on his bike and didn’t think nothing of it.”
