Ex-NBA player Crittenton indicted on murder charges
Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been indicted on murder charges, according to WSBTV in Atlanta.
Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton was indicted Tuesday on charges of murder and gang activity.
The indictment is in connection with the Aug. 19, 2011 fatal shooting of Julian Jones, a 22-year-old mother of four.
Atlanta police indicated that Jones was not the intended target, instead believing Crittenton was targeting a person who robbed him in April, 2011. Jones was shot in the leg and died during surgery.
Crittenton, 25, was a first-round pick of the Lakers in 2007 and also played for the Grizzlies and Wizards in three seasons. He's best known for a Wizards locker-room incident with Gilbert Arenas in which both players brought loaded guns to the arena as part of a gambling dispute.
