LOS ANGELES (AP) — The FBI has added a Jamaican fugitive to its most-wanted list as a suspect in the slaying of four people at a Los Angeles birthday party in October.

The FBI announced a reward of up to $100,000 Thursday for information leading to the arrest of Marlon Jones who should be "considered armed and extremely dangerous."

The FBI says Jones shot and killed a rival Jamaican gang member Oct. 15 at a house that was being used as a restaurant.

The shooting led to a gunfight that killed three others and wounded 10.

Los Angeles police have obtained a warrant for Jones' arrest on four murder counts.

The FBI says Jones has a violent history and is a member of an East Coast Jamaican gang known for illegally selling marijuana.
