Sterling L. Jones


Born: 11 May 1952

Sterling Jones was a member of the Black Panther Party in Chicago who was shot and killed late on Christmas Day in 1969. The official Coroner's Inquest of Death lists Jones's death as an accident—he was "shot with a bullet fired from a gun held in the hand of another person."

FOIA Information

The FBI directed me to a record held by the National Archives. That record, along with others retained by NARA, were not responsive to this request.
