Before the Jones could separate the women, several other men, including juveniles, began assaulting him.  During the assault, Jones was stabbed in the upper chest area.

On Monday he returned to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with complications from his wound and died as a result of that injury while at the hospital. 

The investigation is ongoing.  No arrests have been made at this time.
