DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – For the first time, the man accused in a deadly shooting outside a popular north Dallas pub explains what happened.

Police say Justin Jones pulled the trigger, killing Donald Morrow II, and Jones doesn’t deny it.

From Dallas County Jail, the 19-year old New Orleans native, gave his version of events surrounding the Morrow’s murder.

“I was on them drugs, drugged up,” says Jones. “I don’t remember anything else that day. I just remember blanks. I’m going to fill in the blanks for you, okay?”

Wednesday, Jones and 17-year old Tierra Winters faced a large group of police, arresting them for the robbery and shooting outside the Sherlock’s pub one week ago today.

Jones pointed to his drug use, saying he has no memory of the shooting, but takes responsibility for it.

“First of all, I’m sorry for what I did. If I could take his place, I’d do that,” admits Jones.

“What I did was wrong. I’m not asking his family to accept my apology, but I just want to let his family know that I’m praying for him and his family.”

CBS 11 spoke with Morrow’s mother. She said Jones’ apology is like the devil himself talking. She offered no mercy, no pity.

Jones is charged with capital murder and could face the death penalty.

17-year-old Tierra Winters is accused of driving the getaway car. She also faces a capital murder charge.
