Former Laker Javaris Crittenton Wanted for Murder

Former Laker Javaris Crittenton, who was traded to the Grizzlies in the 2008 deal that brought Pau Gasol to LA, is wanted for murder and is presumed at-large in Los Angeles. Atlanta Police say the 23-year-old Crittenton shot Julian Jones, a mother of four, to death on August 19.

More from the LA Times:

Atlanta homicide detectives said Crittenton was trying to shoot someone he believed stole jewelry from him in April, Georgia law enforcement sources said.

Jones was caught in a hail of bullets from the driver’s side of a sport utility vehicle. She was hit multiple times and declared dead at a hospital, said FBI Special Agent Steve Emmett.

Crittenton’s last Twitter post before he went on the run read: “This is crazy. Trouble continues to follow me for some reason. I put my trust in God,”

His account has since been deleted.
