Jones is reportedly charged with capital murder, leaving the scene of a fatal accident, delivery of a controlled substance, and fleeing. He has no bond.
Authorities said Heather Cater of Traskwood was hit and killed by an alleged stolen vehicle Wednesday evening.
"I saw this young lady step over the median between the two parking areas in the main parking lot and I thought, 'Oh my God, they're going to hit the girl'," said Tim Lamb, a witness who works nearby.
In the fatal accident report released by Lt. Sidney Allen with the Little Rock Police Department, Pulaski County Sheriff's deputies were at the Walgreens on S. University Blvd. in pursuit of a suspect in a reported stolen vehicle.
