The 38-year-old Macon man accused of fatally shooting a man early Sunday morning in Macons Village Green neighborhood was arrested Tuesday night by members of the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force.
Quinton Lavere Jones, of Satterfield Drive, is charged with murder and 10 counts of aggravated assault, according to arrest warrants released Wednesday morning.
He is being held at the county jail without bond, according to jail records.
Jones is accused of fatally shooting 35-year-old Steven Johnson at 5761 Frederica Place.
Task force members traced Jones to a house near the intersection of Ga. 247 and Barnes Ferry Road in south Bibb County. When they approached the house, Jones came out the front door with his hands up and surrendered, said Deputy U.S. Marshal John Edgar.
Jones had been dating the mother of Johnsons child. At some point, the childs mother told Jones she wanted to end their relationship.
Johnson was at the house on Frederica Place on Sunday paying his respects following a death in the childs mothers family when he and Jones argued.
Nine other people were in the house when Jones shot Johnson four times about 2:15 a.m., according to arrest warrants.
Bullets hit Johnson in the head, torso, thigh and buttocks, according to a police report.
Although an officer noted in the report that Johnson had a weapon, no weapon was found.
A witness told police she was standing directly behind Johnson when he was shot and that she tried to revive him once he fell, according to the warrants.
Jones was denied bond Wednesday during a hearing in Bibb County Magistrate Court. He requested a commitment hearing, a time when police testify about why they filed charges. The hearing is scheduled for Aug. 21.
