Richmond County authorities have identified four suspects in last week’s shooting death of a Hephzibah man, according to arrest warrants.
Rian Stone, 17, Ebonee D. Jones, 20, Carlos Mack, 17, and a juvenile girl, have been identified as suspects in the Jan. 12 murder and attempted armed robbery that killed Deivante McFadden, according to arrest warrants.
Stone and Jones are in custody while Mack is not, according to jail officials. It is unclear if the juvenile has been arrested.
Warrants say that Stone was the shooter and fired his gun at the McFadden as the victim tried to drive away from the robbery on Winston Way. The victim was found shot in the driver’s seat of a black Kia Rio wrecked on the 2300 block of Winston Way at 2:48 am on a Sunday. He was transported to the Augusta University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.
According to arrest warrants, Ebonee Jones was the getaway driver.
