Two teens, who told Dallas police that they had been out on a robbery spree, were in custody Wednesday in the slaying of man who attempted to thwart one of the holdups last week in a bar parking lot.

Dallas police identified one suspect as Justin Gerald Jones, 19, who authorities say was the shooter in the capital murder case. The other teen was identified as Tierra Winters, 17, of Hutchins. She was driving the getaway car, an arrest warrant affidavit released Wednesday states.

Jones is accused of fatally shooting Donald Morrow, 36, who had attempted to stop the teen from robbing one of Morrow's friends in the parking lot of Sherlock's Baker St. Pub & Grill, 9100 N. Central Expressway on Oct. 18.

Margie Morrow said police told her that a man walked up and pointed a gun at her son's friend, Donnie Bullock, and asked for his money.

"Donnie told him, 'I don't have any,'" she said. "My son hit him, and he turned around and shot him

According to the affidavit, Winters told Dallas police early Wednesday that she drove Jones to several different locations in Dallas as he robbed several different people.

Winters said she dropped Jones off in front of a Chinese restaurant. He then started walking down Central Expressway while she waited in the car, the affidavit states.

A few minutes later, Winters said she heard a gun shot and saw Jones running, according to the affidavit. She drove quickly through a parking lot and picked Jones up.

Jones admitted to Dallas police that he shot Morrow, the affidavit states.

Jones' image also was captured on a video surveillance camera in the area of the shooting and was identified by three witnesses, the affidavit states.
