Javaris Crittenton Wanted For Alleged Murder In Drive-By Shooting

Former Wizards guard Javaris Crittenton is wanted for an alleged murder in a drive-by shooting in Atlanta. Crittenton was the other party involved in the gun dispute involving Gilbert Arenas in 2009.

Javaris Crittenton, a former Georgia Tech basketball standout who last played in the NBA with the Washington Wizards in 2010, is wanted for an alleged murder in a drive-by shooting. Crittenton faces homicide charges for allegedly shooting a 23-year old woman in Atlanta on August 19.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Crittenton was looking for revenge on someone who robbed him in April. As he was driving, he saw who he believed to be the perpetrator of that robbery. Instead, it was a 23-year old mother of four named Jullian Jones. Two men who were with Jones fled the scene uninjured, and police believe one of those men was the person who robbed Crittenton.

Crittenton is most known for being the other party involved in the dispute where Gilbert Arenas brought guns into the Wizards' locker room in the middle of the 2009-10 season. He was suspended then.
