Jones survived the shooting and has been charged with first-degree burglary, a felony. He remained in custody Monday in Bryan County jail. Bail is set at $250,000.
Last year, Jones was involved in an incident involving a 17-year-old girl described as mentally disabled.
Police said Jones was caught on surveillance cameras Sept. 26, 2011, as he picked up a girl from Durant High School in his mini van.

The girl’s parents would report her missing after she failed to come home from school, but she was reportedly dropped off by Jones the following day at a fire station in Denison, Texas — roughly 20 miles from Durant.
