Arrest warrants have been issued for the husband of a 37-year-old woman who was shot and killed late Saturday in east Macon.

The suspect's son was arrested shortly after the killing, according to Bibb County jail records.

Authorities are looking for 43-year-old Jasento Lachun Flowers Sr. who is wanted on charges of murder and aggravated assault in the shooting, a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release stated.

Less than two hours after the shooting, Jasento Lachun Flowers Jr. was booked into the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center on a felony tampering with evidence charge and a probation violation.

The elder Flowers was on parole from prison at the time of the shooting, according to Georgia Department of Corrections online records.

He is described as a dark-skin black male, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds. He was last seen driving a black 2001 BMW 740i with the tag PDF 3490 and is considered armed and dangerous, the release stated.

Bridgette Flowers was in a minivan with four others when she was shot in the face about 10:10 p.m.

Jamecia Williams, 18, and Onterio Smith, 19, both of Macon, also were shot in the incident, the released stated. The shooting happened at Flowers’ Maynard Street home, Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said.

Williams was taken with Flowers to The Medical Center of Central Georgia and was released Sunday. Smith refused medical treatment.

They were in Flowers’ 2005 white Chrysler Town and Country van, but it was not clear if Flowers was driving at the time.

The incident began on Trinity Place and ended on Maynard Street, the release stated.

Flowers had convictions from 1991 incidents of sale and distribution of cocaine and possession of cocaine, state DOC online records show.
