Bond was denied for the woman accused of driving the getaway car in last week's fatal shooting outside a Macon nightclub. 

Miranda Pettiway was in court Thursday afternoon for a first appearance.  

According to the arrest warrant, Pettiway admitted driving Andre Bonner, the man who is suspected of shooting and killing 17-year-old Jammoni Bland outside the Zodiac Lounge last Friday morning.

Bland was shot five times at close range and died at the scene.

The warrant also says Pettiway drove a second man, John Hollingshed, who shot and wounded Deion Davis.  Davis was shot eight times.

Bonner is in the Bibb County is in the Bibb County jail, charged with criminal attempt to commit murder and participation in gang activity and murder.

He was taken into custody last Friday, the day of the shooting, and police say he was formally charged Tuesday in Bland's killing.

Pettiway, Bonner and Hollingshed were all members of a criminal street gang, the "Mafia," the warrant says.

Pettiway is in the Bibb County jail, charged with felony murder, attempted murder and taking part in criminal gang activities.

The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. last Friday outside the Zodiac Lounge.

Police say several people fired shots after a fight broke out inside the club.

Police initially said Bland appeared to be an innocent bystander, but Major Charles Stone declined to comment further Thursday on what they think happened.

Macon police held a news conference Thursday afternoon to say they're looking for six more people in the case:

-- Johnifer Dernard Barnwell, age 27;

-- Arthur Freeman III, age 27;

-- Kiyo Johnson, age 30;

-- Jimmy Scott III, 29;

-- Jarrett Taylor, 27.

-- and John Hollingshed, age 27.

They are all suspected of criminal attempt to commit murder and participation in gang activity; Hollingshed is also accused of murder.
