Jones' grandmother Mary Andrews, who was at home at the time of the shooting, said her mortally wounded grandson was able to make his way into the house, telling her that Sneed shot him four times and that he was dying.

Jones was rushed to Grady Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries 10 hours later. He is survived by five young children.

Andrews revealed that Jones and Sneed had a strained relationship and that the two men had clashed once before over the mother.

The day after the deadly shooting, Calvin Sneed's colleagues at Superior Chevrolet car dealership reported that he came in to work as usual, but he later allegedly confessed to killing his mistress' son.

Police said Sneed then proceeded to clean out his office, telling co-workers he did not want cops to come looking for him.

After leaving work, the 51-year-old car salesman made several phone calls from different numbers trying to get his last paycheck from his employer.

On Wednesday, police tracked down Sneed's red 2006 Kia Sonata to a home located less than 2 miles from the scene of the crime.

The vehicle was in the possession of a teenager, suggesting that Sneed might have sold it before going on the lam.

Sneed is described as 6-foot-tall, weighing 190lbs and should be considered armed and dangerous.

His last know place of residence was in Lithia Springs, Georgia, but police said he has ties to Memphis, Tennessee.

Both Jones' mother and grandmother made a public plea asking Sneed to turn himself in.

A relative has launched a GoFundMe campaign to cover Jones' funeral expenses and provide financial aid to her five children.
