Several hours later Jones became aware the prostitute was actually a man, he left him to get a handgun before finding Mr Pearson in a different area of town and ‘popped him’.
Police said they found the 31-year-old’s body just before midnight after an eye witness called 911 and told dispatchers he saw a man in a hoodie running from the scene.
