The shooting happened after a struggle with Buford and fellow officer Greg King who were called to the scene to investigate, according to police reports. Buford fired the fatal shot, according to reports.
Jones had already left the store, which he broke into at 2 a.m. that night by prying open the door with a crowbar, police said. He was holding a bag stuffed with cigarettes and Canadian currency, but was unarmed.
He died later that morning at MetroHealth Hospital.

Cleveland police union to raffle gun in fundraiser for officer accused of shooting teen
The Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Union has come under fire for raffling off a Glock pistol to raise money for an officer accused of shooting an unarmed teenager.A flier, posted in the Cuyahoga County Justice Center, advertises a fundraiser at the CPPA Memorial Hall. For a $20 donation, attendees are entered to win a Glock 26 and a smart TV.
CPPA President Steve Loomis said no offense was ever intended.
"Raffling off a Glock in a police community is like raffling off M&Ms at a kid's birthday party," Loomis said."Ordinary, said Aunt Lydia, is what you are used to. This may not seem ordinary to you now, but after a time it will. It will become ordinary.”
