UPDATE: A seventh suspect in the Zodiac Nightclub shooting earlier this month that left a Macon teenager dead has been located.

Officers arrested Jonifer Barnwell on Taylor Street in Macon around 6:30 Wednesday night after receiving an anonymous tip.

Barnwell and another individual were inside and refused to answer the door so police broke into the home.

Barnwell was arrested without resistance.

Terico Balkom was also arrested on charges of harboring a fugitive.

And on Tuesday afternoon, after a tip to the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, one suspect in a Macon nightclub shooting was captured in Columbus.


John Edgar, supervisor with the task force told 13WMAZ that 27-year-old John Hollingshed was taken into custody without incident Wednesday afternoon.

"Around 3:00 we located the suspect in a room at the Value Place Hotel at 1801 Victory Drive in Columbus," Edgar said.   

Macon Police have said that Hollingshed was wanted in connection with the July 5th shooting at the Zodiac Lounge on Walnut Street in Macon and is the sixth person arrested for the crime.

Investigators believe Hollingshed shot Deion Davis at least eight times following a fight inside the club.

Hollingshed is officially charged with felony murder in connection with the death of 17-year-old Jamonni Bland and a charge of criminal attempt to commit murder in the shooting of 21-year old Deion Davis.

Members of the marshal service are still searching for two more people involved with the shooting. Outstanding warrants remain are issued for 27-year-old Johnifer Barnwell and 29-year old Jimmy Scott III.
