Man threatened to kill two Paterson police officers over Jameek Lowery’s death


A city man was arrested on Monday morning for threatening to kill two police officers over the mysterious death of Jameek “Mickey” Lowery in a video, said police director Jerry Speziale on Monday morning.

Edward Lawrence Jones was arrested at 92 Carroll Street at about 9 a.m., said Speziale. Police confiscated an illegal handgun from Jones. He is charged with weapons offenses and making terroristic threats, according to police.

Jones claimed Lowery was his brother. A family member said Jones is not Lowery’s actual brother, but that the two men were close friends.

“Imma kill one of you mother f—ers. Matter a fact, Imma kill two of you mother f—ers. How about that?” Jones says in a 30-second video referring to police officers.

Jones appears upset and angry at the death of Lowery in the video. He identifies himself in the video as Edward Lawrence Jones.

Lowery died last Monday. His unexplained death has sparked multiple nights of protests in downtown Paterson. Last Tuesday, the protest turned violent. Some protesters flipped steel barricades and broke the window of the Frank X. Graves Public Safety Complex, said Speziale.

Police had to use mace to control the crowd of more than 200 people.

    This is not how you should deal with this young man there is due process here in the country. If the police is involved them there will be a due process.
    There will be an investigation, let follow the process.
