Jones first admitted that he was driving the car, a small black sedan. The car was spotted on video surveillance speeding away from the shooting scene. Jones later told police that Luna fired a shot from the back seat while Edwards was in the front seat of the vehicle at the time.

Lane’s death has sparked outrage from politicians in his home country. Australian Deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer called for a boycott of the U.S.
“So, it is another example of murder and mayhem on Main Street,” Fischer told CNN’s Piers Morgan on Tuesday. “Yes, people are thinking of going to the USA on business, vacation, trips, should think carefully about it given the statistical facts you are 15 times more likely to be shot dead in the USA than in Australia per capita per million people,” said Fischer.
Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks was unavailable for comment.
