Each of the eight people accused in the July 5 shooting at downtown Macons Zodiac Lounge have previously been convicted of a crime.
The charges range from aggravated assault to firearms offenses and traffic violations.
While most of them have been sentenced only to probation, two have done time in state prison.
Macon police obtained warrants last week for Andre Bonner, 30; Miranda Pettiway, 27; Johnifer Dernard Barnwell, 27; Arthur Thomas Freeman III, 27; John Michael Hollingshed, 27; Kiyo Latrice Johnson, 30; Jimmy Scott III, 29; and Jarrett Taylor, 27.
All but three of the suspects are in custody.
Bonner, Pettiway and Hollingshed are charged with murder in the death of 17-year-old Jammoni Bland. They also are charged with attempted murder and participation in criminal street gang activity, as are Barnwell, Freeman, Johnson, Scott and Taylor, according to police.
According to state prison records, Bibb County Superior Court records and Bibb County State Court records:
Bonner, who lives on Finsbury Drive, served a little more than three months in state prison after being convicted of possession of cocaine and marijuana with the intent to distribute in 2003. He initially was sentenced to probation, but he was sent to prison in 2011.
Bonner pleaded guilty to misdemeanor marijuana possession and giving a false name in 2002. He was sentenced to probation. Bonner also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor marijuana possession and obstruction in 2005. He was sentenced to probation again.
Pettiway, whose court records show shares a child with Bonner, pleaded guilty to speeding, disregarding a stop sign and having an improper drivers license in 2007. She was ordered to pay fines. Pettiway, who lives on Nisbet Road, pleaded guilty to shoplifting in 2009 and 2011 and was sentenced to probation both times.
Hollingshed was sentenced to five years on probation in April 2003 after he pleaded guilty to stealing a car in Bibb County.
Months later, he was sent to state prison on a Monroe County robbery charge. He served about seven years. After being free for about four months, he went back to prison on a Monroe County theft by receiving stolen property conviction. He was released May 13.
Freeman, who lives on Log Cabin Drive, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony in 2006. He was sentenced to serve 90 to 120 days in a probation detention center and 10 years on probation.
Johnson, of Bristol Drive, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal trespass in 2000 and was sentenced to probation. She was convicted of misdemeanor theft and simple battery in 2005 and was sentenced to probation.
Taylor, who lives on Gadson Drive, was sentenced to five years on probation and 90 to 180 days in a probation detention center in 2008 after he pleaded guilty to obstruction and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery in 2009 and was sentenced to probation.
In 2010, Taylor was found guilty of burglary. He was sentenced to 730 days at the county jail with credit for time served from February 2009, and seven years on probation. Taylor pleaded guilty to two counts of not having a drivers license and one count of misdemeanor marijuana possession in 2012. He was sentenced to six months in jail.
Barnwell pleaded guilty to family-violence-related misdemeanor simple battery and criminal trespass in 2004. He was sentenced to a year in jail.
That same year he was sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. He was sentenced to probation in 2012 for driving on a suspended or revoked license.
A case charging Barnwell with entering an auto, possession of tools for the commission of a crime and criminal damage to property is pending in Bibb County Superior Court.
Scott pleaded guilty to misdemeanor obstruction twice, once in 2003 and a second time in 2004. He was sentenced to probation for the first offense and 30 days in jail for the second. In 2004 he pleaded guilty to having an improper tag, not having a drivers license and giving a false name. He was sentenced to probation.
Scott was sentenced to 10 years on probation in 2009 after he pleaded guilty to shooting a man. A condition of his probation was that he couldnt associate with members of the Macon Mafia street gang. In 2010, he pleaded guilty to violating his probation by associating with gang members and was sentenced to between 580 and 730 days in a probation detention center.
Arrest warrants in the Zodiac case allege that Bonner, Freeman, Johnson and Taylor beat 21-year-old Deion Davis just before the shooting began and that the four, along with Pettiway, are members of the Mafia street gang.
Bonner shot Bland five times at close range and Hollingshed shot Davis eight times, according to arrest warrants, and Pettiway drove Bonner and Hollingshed away after the shooting.
Police still are searching for Barnwell, Hollingshed and Scott.
