According to Fort Valley Police, investigators were told videos were circulating that showed a fight alleged to have taken place prior to the fatal shooting.
Warrants were then issued for the following five people:
- Jadarius Sanders, 23, is charged with aggravated battery and participation in criminal street gang activity.
