Two Macon teenagers have been sentenced to serve 10 years in prison in connection with a shooting near the Black Velvet Lounge following a 2009 birthday party, according to the Bibb County District Attorney’s Office.
Charles Iwo, 18, of Captain Kell Drive, and Nickholas Jones, 18, of Pio Nono Avenue, were convicted Thursday of six counts of aggravated assault and one count of participation in street gang activity following a three-day trial, prosecutor Sandy Matson said.
Iwo and Jones also must serve five years on probation, she said.
A third teen, 17-year-old Jamarkus Lagara Adams of Pio Nono Circle, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault Monday and was sentenced to serve between 540 and 640 days in a detention center and 12 years on probation, Matson said.
Following the Sept. 20, 2009, party, several shots were fired from a vacant building behind the night club. A vehicle with six people inside was struck by bullets multiple times.
Two teens inside the vehicle were injured. One was shot in the face, and other was shot in the head. Both survived.
