Police investigate Zodiac Lounge shooting July 5, 2013.

A magistrate judge denied bond for four people involved in a shooting that left 17-year-old Jammoni Bland dead last Friday.

Andre Bonner, Jarrett Taylor, Kiyo Latrice Johnson, and Arthur Thomas Freeman, III are all charged with criminal attempt to commit murder and participation in criminal street gang activity.

Bonner is also charged with murder, after allegedly shooting  Bland five times. Police say the four participated in a group beating of Deion Davis, that was captured on surveillance video. 13WMAZ tried to gain access to the video, but were denied because police say it's an open investigation.

Miranda Pettiway was also denied bond yesterday. She's charged with murder, criminal attempt to commit murder and participation in criminal street gang activity. Police say she drove the getaway car that Bonner and Hollingshed were in.

Three of the eight suspects in the case are still at large: Johnifer Barnwell, John Hollingshed and Jimmy Lee Scott III.

They all face charges in the fight and shootout that led to the death of 17-year-old Jammoni Bland. It happened early on Friday, July 5, outside the Zodiac Lounge on Walnut Street.

Macon police arrest warrants say that several people, including Freeman, Taylor, Barnwell, Hollingshead and Scott, all took part in a group beating of Deion Davis. Police say Hollingshead then shot Davis eight times.

Warrants say another suspect, Andre Bonner, shot Bland at close range five times, and Bland died on the scene.

Several of the suspects are members or associates of a street gang named "Mafia," the warrants say. 

Anyone with information on the case can call Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68-CRIME.
