Antwan turned himself in.  He most likely couldn't live with the guilt he felt after finding out Holmes passed away.  Jones has been arrested numerous times.  Surveillance shows Antwan at the scene of the crime.  He most likely knew the cameras were on the street yet he still believed he needed to protect his turf.
