A hearing is scheduled on Wednesday morning for the man who police say shot and killed another man on an MTA bus while several people were on board.

Court documents show the hearing for 18-year-old Antonio Jones will be a review.

That can mean a lot of things. In some cases, attorneys set a future court date or during some reviews, defendants elect to take a plea deal.

Jones is charged with criminal homicide after police say he shot and killed 18-year-old Tyvonceea Hayden on an MTA bus in Madison on Monday.

Police said the shooting occurred on the bus as it traveled on Gallatin Pike South near East Webster Street.A witness told News 4 the shooting happened after a very brief exchange of words.

According to police, Jones got on the bus with his girlfriend and infant child at the Madison library. Witnesses said Hayden was already on board. The shooting happened just moments later.

After the shooting, police said Jones and his girlfriend, who was carrying the infant, ran away in different directions.

Police said Hayden had dated a member of Jones' family.

A vigil was held Tuesday night in memory of Hayden. Friends and family say they’re still trying to make sense of what happened.
