Javaris Crittenton

UPDATE: According to published reports, Crittenton was arrested at John Wayne Airport on Monday night. He subsequently waived his right to an extradition hearing and will return to Atlanta, Georgia, where he is wanted in regards to a fatal drive-by shooting.

Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Brian D. Lamkin, in conjunction with Assistant Director in Charge Steven M. Martinez, Los Angeles FBI, requests the public’s assistance in the following matter:

Javaris Crittenton, age 23, of Fayetteville, Georgia, is wanted by the Atlanta Police Department on murder charges stemming from the August 19, 2011 fatal shooting of 22 year old Julian Jones. On that date, officers responding to a shooting found Ms. Jones with multiple gunshot wounds. She was transported to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead. Witnesses in the matter stated that a dark colored SUV vehicle drove by the location firing an assault type rifle.

Crittenton, a former National Basketball Association (NBA) player, is believed to have traveled to the Los Angeles, California area where he is known to have family and friends. Investigators learned that on August 24, Crittenton purchased and traveled on a one way airline ticket to Los Angeles.

On Monday, August 29 the Atlanta Office FBI obtained a federal Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution (UFAP) arrest warrant for Crittenton.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this individual should contact their local law enforcement agency, the Atlanta FBI Office, tel. 404-679-9000, or the Los Angeles FBI Office, tel. 310-477-6565.
