Columbus Police Officer Alfonzo King said he was called to Farr Road the day of the shooting at 12:50 p.m.
When he arrived on the scene, he was told that a man was working on a trailer when a maroon Kia filled with three men pulled up. The victim said that another man in the rear seat of the vehicle used what appeared to be a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol to fire five shots at him as two victims others stood near by, according to King.
The vehicle was about 50 feet away from the victims, but no one was harmed, the officer testified.
On the day of the incident, the victim who said he was the target of the attack named Jones as the shooter, King said.
That same victim told police that he hasn't had any recent disagreements with Jones, but they had a confrontation about stolen money more than a year ago, King testified.
No one else has been identified as a suspect in the shooting, according to police.
The officers said that police have not recovered the weapon, but they have seized five .40 caliber copper shells found at the scene. One .40 caliber projectiles was found inside a nearby residence and the other was outside of it, King told the court.
Represented by public defender Charles Lykins, Jones did not testify during the Thursday hearing.
