The brother of a young man shot to death when authorities said the two Macon siblings held a man up at gunpoint last month was jailed Thursday.
Authorities have said the slain man and his brother, Paul Washington Jr., 17, tried to rob a Sandersville man at gunpoint as he was leaving a west Macon motel in the wee hours of Sept. 30.
Douglas Wayne Jackson Jr., 34, told Macon police that he shot and fatally wounded Darius Washington, 19, and also fired at his brother, who got away.
The shooting happened at the Scottish Inn, which overlooks the Eisenhower Parkway interchange at Interstate 475.
Paul Washington had been wanted in the case on armed robbery and felony murder charges, authorities said.
By law, Paul Washington can be prosecuted in the slaying because it is said to have stemmed from a stickup he was allegedly involved in.
Jackson is not expected to face charges.
Darius Washingtons funeral was Wednesday.
