88 involved in mob at Macon Wal-Mart

Investigators now believe 88 people were involved in the June 28 rampage at Macon’s Zebulon Road Wal-Mart.

Eight of the suspects have been identified, and six have been arrested.

District Attorney David Cooke announced at a Thursday news conference that he’s dismissed gang charges filed against two of the suspects -- Lekelvin Lamont Renfroe, 20, and Hajjmalik Markaveli Renfroe, 18. Both still face criminal damage to property and riot charges.

Gang charges filed against Vashaun Chandler Rozier, 18, and Kharron Green, 17, still remain, he said.

A 16-year-old boy also has been charged with criminal damage to property, rioting and criminal gang activity in the case.

Larry Dewayne White, a 20-year-old Macon resident, was arrested Thursday afternoon, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release. He is charged with riot and criminal damage to property.

Cooke said arrest warrants have been obtained for two additional suspects, who will be charged with criminal damage to property and rioting.

He said his decision to drop the gang charges against the Renfroes was based on a review of the evidence, conducting interviews and meeting with investigators.
