Southwest Detectives say Richard Jones, 26, drove up to the bar on Westminster and Belmont, jumped out of his vehicle and went to the door, AK-47 in hand. When he couldn’t get the door open, he began shooting. When he finished, he ran to catch his car, which had rolled down the street. “I guess you chalk it up to, he’s not the brightest of criminals,” Captain Ben Naish tells NBC Philadelphia. As Jones chased his moving vehicle, he fired one shot at police. He missed. From there, the suspect walked into a woman’s home in Manayunk and terrorized her before heading to Lafayette Hills where his car broke down. Police tell NBC Philadelphia that Jones got out of his car and tossed the AK-47 in a resident’s backyard.”
