Early Friday morning, 17-year-old Jammoni Bland was killed, shot outside the Zodiac Lounge in Macon.

"I had talked to him earlier that day. So why he was down there, what he was doing, I don't know," said Jacqueline Sanders, Bland's mother.

Police say Bland appears to be an innocent bystander.
Sanders says her son was getting his life back on track after hanging with the wrong crowd and getting into trouble. He was even considering joining the military.

"That was one of the options that his granddad had brought up to him that would be good for him. He could make a career out of it," said Sanders.

The teen loved basketball and was protective of his siblings. His mother said he had an aura about him.

"We were close. He was a real good brother, and I'm gonna miss him. A lot," said Jacquelle Sanders, Bland's sister.

"Anyone that was there that night, or if you have any information, just please call the Macon Police Department and give them the information. That will give me closure. That will help me in my mourning for him," said his mother.

On Thursday, the family is holding a prayer vigil outside of the Zodiac Lounge at 426 Walnut Street in Macon, from 7 until 8 p.m.
