Rockford police have arrested 30-year-old Antonio Sago, Jr. for the murder of Jennifer Jones at the Auburn Street Citgo gas station in November 2018.

The shooting occurred shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday morning, November 11th, in the parking lot of the Citgo gas station at 4315 Auburn Street.

The coroner says Jennifer Jones was shot in the chest. She was alive when they arrived on-scene, but she was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Another victim, 25-year-old Tommy Nabors, later arrived at a local hospital suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. 

Marquell Longs, Antonio Sago and Devontai Dotson are all accused of Jones’ murder. According to the indictment, all three conspired to kill Nabors. Sago drove Dotson to the gas station, and acted as lookout while Longs was to commit the murder, but Longs and Sago are both charged with shooting at Nabors. Longs allegedly fired the rounds that killed Jones. Dotson is accused of giving the gun to Longs.

A memorial sits just yards away from the Citgo gas station on Auburn street where she was shot and killed.

A $10 million arrest warrant was issued for Longs following an investigation by detectives with the Rockford Police Department. He was arrested in January by Rockford Police and the U.S. Marshalls.

A total of 41 counts are lodged against the three men, including multiple counts of First Degree Murder, Attempted Murder, Conspiracy, and Mob Action.

Sago, Jr. turned himself into police on Monday, February 11th. Dotson is still at large.
