Police officers saw Jones shooting at a man just before 11 p.m. Wednesday in the 700 block of East 87th Place and arrested him after a short foot chase, police said.

Jones is accused of shooting James Reddick, 58, near his home on the same block. Reddick was dead on the scene with a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
