APD Chief of Police Harold Medina says officers saw a man shoot and kill 21-year-old Melina Jones before fleeing the area. He said one officer did fire at least one shot. “One officer did discharge their firearm, but due to the size of the crowd officers were unable to discharge any other rounds,” Medina said.
