Child killed in Chesterfield, 'devastated' older brother arrested (VA)

Recommended Posts

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A family tragedy in Chesterfield has resulted in one death and one arrest.


Rayshawn Elmore, 22, was arrested Wednesday for killing his younger brother, 12-year-old Jamarrieon Jones, at their Totty Street home in Ettrick.


Elmore removed the magazine clip from a gun and cocked it, but mistakenly left a bullet in the chamber, Crime Insider sources told Jon Burkett about the Tuesday night shooting. He fired the weapon, and the bullet hit his 12-year-old brother Jamarrieon in the chest.


Jamarrieon, affectionately known as Ya-Ya, was rushed to the hospital where he died.


"Right now we are saying it was an inadvertent shooting,” Chesterfield Police Sgt. Michael Agnew said. "Our thoughts are with the family of this young child. We want the community to know we investigated this very thoroughly and it lead to the quick arrest."


Elmore, according to Crime Insider sources, attempted to set himself on fire before his Wednesday morning arrest.


Jamarrieon Jones' mother said her family was no stranger to tragedy.


In 2016, she said Ya-Ya's brother William Elmore was shot to death after a bullying situation in Petersburg.


Two years later, Ya-Ya, his sister, and his mom were abducted by his mother's fiancé after he shot and killed a tow truck driver in Petersburg. News Link Topic from 2018


Now Rayshawn Elmore, a soon-to-be father of two, is charged with the involuntary manslaughter of his younger brother.


Elmore, who his mom described as devastated, is due in court Thursday morning.


There have been four shootings and two deaths in Chesterfield over the past five days.

How horribly tragic.  


Note:  Anton Robinson, the mom's alleged fiance' and abductor, was sentenced to 25-years for ambushing and shooting to death of repo agent Alan Humphries s he was seated in his tow truck.
