Third man arrested in shooting at gas station parking lot in Macon

A third man has been charged with criminal attempt to commit murder in connection with a Monday shooting in the parking lot of the Marathon gas station at the corner of Shurling Drive and New Clinton Road that injured two people, according to the Macon police.

Vanshaun Lapez Stephens, 18, of Riggins Mill Road, was arrested at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, said Sgt. Melanie Hofmann, police spokeswoman.

Hofmann said Stephens was in the car with Jawaski Keon Mack, 21, and his brother, 19-year-old Jarvis Leon Mack also known as “Nuke Nuke” — who also are charged with criminal attempt to commit murder — at the time the shooting occurred.

Jawaski and Jarvis Mack were arrested earlier Tuesday, Hofmann said.

Hofmann 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 Monday night.

Oliver, who was shot in the head and upper torso, was listed in critical but stable condition Wednesday at The Medical Center of Central Georgia. Hofmann said Garrett was shot in the foot and has been released from the hospital.
