Four indicted for attempted murder in Macon shooting in February

Four Macon men were indicted Tuesday on charges of criminal attempt to commit murder in connection with the Feb. 23 shooting that injured two men in the parking lot of the Marathon gas station at the corner of Shurling Drive and New Clinton Road.

Melvin Curry Jr., 25, of Roseview Avenue; Jarvis L. Mack, 19, of Upper River Road; Jawaski K. Mack, 21, of Napier Avenue, and Vanshaun L. Stephens, 19, of Riggins Mill Road were each indicted by a Bibb County grand jury on three counts of criminal attempt to commit murder and three counts of aggravated assault, according to Bibb County Superior Court records.

Curry also was indicted on charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to the records. All four men are being held at the Bibb County jail without bond, according to jail records.

Police have said 24-year-old Lavar Garrett, 24-year-old Jerico Oliver and 22-year-old Kentrell Jordan, all of Macon, were inside a teal-colored Chevrolet Impala when someone in a black Honda fired shots at the vehicle in the parking lot.

Oliver was shot in the head and upper torso and Garrett was shot in the foot, according to police.

Jordan, who wasn’t injured in the shooting, told police he was in the car with Garrett and Oliver who were on their way to the “Roseview area” to take Oliver to see Jarvis Mack who goes by the nickname “Nuke Nuke,” according to a police report.

On the way, they pulled into the gas station parking lot and noticed a Honda pull up beside them, according to the report.

A man leaned out the window of the Honda and fired multiple rounds inside the Chevrolet Impala. Jordan ducked down onto the seat and Garrett ducked down on top of him, according to the report.

At some point, Jordan got out of the car and ran into a bushy area behind the gas station. He eventually went into the gas station, where he stayed until police arrived, according to the report. Garrett, shot in the foot, managed to get inside the store, where people inside came to his aid, according to the report.

Jarvis Mack also was indicted Tuesday in connection with a Feb. 15 shooting.

Mack is charged with criminal attempt to commit murder and aggravated assault stemming from allegations he shot 26-year-old Dexter Dewayne Bell in the face at his home at 2073 Jeffersonville Road, according to court records.

Police have said Mack was arrested Feb. 17 and released on $22,000 bond, about a week prior to the shooting at the gas station.

Also indicted were:

Ÿ Logan Leroy Williams, 53, on two counts of criminal attempt to commit murder, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to Bibb County court records.

Williams is accused of shooting at two people with a rifle on Jan. 30, according to the indictment.

Ÿ Keith Bernard Davis, 47, of May Avenue, on charges of aggravated assault stemming from an allegation he struck a woman’s head on a cement floor repeatedly and struck her in the back with his hands and feet on Feb. 14, according to court records.

Davis is being held at the Bibb County jail on $8,350 bond, according to jail records.

Ÿ Sabastian Jackson, 38, on charges of aggravated battery on a peace officer and obstruction of an officer stemming from an allegation he broke bones in an officer’s hand while fighting with him March 1.
