Christopher Darnell Jones Jr Parents In Disbelief Over Their Son's Action
Christopher Darnell Jones Jr parents are Christopher Darnell Jones Sr and Margo Jones. They divorced when he was five years old.
He has left his parents in disbelief following his crime. He shot five students.
Christopher and his three brothers were reared by their single mother, Margo. After the incident, she picked up a phone call from Washington Post reporters and said, "I can tell you now that Chris was a good kid."
When she discovered the happening, Margo said she tried contacting him many times but could not get through. According to her, he sounded well when they spoke on Sunday. She added that Jones Jr. was thrilled to celebrate his 23rd birthday this November 17.
Jones had been on the run for almost a day and a half when the police eventually caught up with him and hauled him into jail. Christopher Darnell Jones Sr., his father, has said that he is still working to comprehend the claims that have been made against his son.
"I can't believe it was him; I still can't believe it now," Jones Sr. said to the police.
The distressed father shared some details while speaking to Jones over a phone call last time. Jones Sr. said Christopher is a very sensitive person, a friend to everyone, and some people bullied him at school. The last time he saw Jones was when he came to do his laundry, and Jones Jr. seemed fine then.
After the news of the occurrence spread and his family members and relatives knew Jones's conduct, they were utterly stunned. They expressed their deepest condolences to all those who had been hurt and victimized by his action.
His family relocated to Varina, located around ten miles outside of Richmond, while he was in middle school. Although he made new friends there, mainly via the sport of football, his connection with his mother became more strained.
He grew up in disturbing housing in Richmond, and he often gets in the mix of a bad neighborhood. Nevertheless, his father, who abandoned the family when he was young, has indicated that they keep in touch via phone a few times a month.
