Michael Jones got into an argument with Earl Jordan. That argument turned into a physical fight, but it was broken up and the two men went their separate ways.
Jones, however, could not let things go. He sought out Jordan and found him outside of a school. Lots of people were gathered at the school at the time, including children and bands, because there was going to be a "Stop the Violence" parade. In front of all of these people, Jones pulled out a gun and shot Jordan to death.
