Marlon Jones

A new fugitive has been added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Marlon Jones, a Jamaican national, is wanted for the killings of four people at a Los Angeles birthday party Oct. 15. Officials say Jones is "armed and dangerous" and is a member of the East Coast Jamaican gang, according to CNN.


"The crimes allegedly committed by Marlon Jones are extremely violent, earning him a place on the FBI's Top Ten list," Deirdre Fike, the assistant director in charge of the FBI's Los Angeles Field Office, said in a statement Thursday.

"Jones has violent tendencies and may attempt to flee internationally," the FBI said. "He has ties to New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, California, Tennessee, the Virgin Islands and Jamaica."

The shootout, which authorities say occurred between rival gang members during a party in a house that had been turned into an illegal restaurant, left 10 people wounded and four others dead. One suspect was released from police custody after surveillance cameras cleared him of any wrongdoing.

Jones goes by aliases including Rasheen Brantley, Floyd Evans and Anthony Howard. A reward of $100,000 has been offered for information leading to his arrest. Jones is described as a black man, standing 5 feet 9 inches or 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 160-170 pounds.
